First of all this cake was work. I almost started crying when I stacked the first layer and it was pointing the wrong way. Like a big dummy, tried to move it and ruined the frosting. I used the House buttercream from the book. I really love the frosting and the texture, but I am so not ready to work with that frosting. Being that it doenst crust I can only hot knife it. But after I got over that, I think this is one of my favorite cakes I have ever done. I used americolors electic color. I LOVE THEM.
I have posted it in birthday gallery.
Not too shabby!! Yeah, once you get the hang of those topsy turvy cakes, they're not too bad!!! Good first try!!!
great first try! Can I make a suggestion? Maybe make higher layers so that it doesn't bunch up like that...also it looks like a lot of BC. But, I LOVE THOSE KINDS OF CAKES, and I LOVE THE COLORS! Good job!
What a fun cake...the colors are great! Did you make the candles out of candy melts? They look great...very whimsical.
Yes, the candles are candy melts. It was inspired by one of the cakes from the Whimsical bakehouse books, but on a smaller scale.
