I am doing one for my daughter's 4th bday party this weekend. I am no expert cake decorator by any means and can only do the basics really
My idea was a white sheet cake with rainow colors around the outside of the cake for the border. Then a rainbow on top of the cake, green grass with the red poppies in it and a yellow brick road leading to the emerald city. with a laminated picture of my daughter in her dorothy dress from halloween like she is standing on the yellow brick road. My problem is I dont know how to do the emerald city. I tried finding a pic to laminate too but I cant find one for the life of me that will print properly. any suggestions??
This is the cake that I did for my best friend's little girl who turned 4 in December. My friend added a rainbow that she printed out behind the emerald city. It turned out really cute and was pretty easy to decorate. I made the emerald city and brick road out of candy clay and dusted the city with green luster dust. The shoes are plastic favors my friend ordered from a party supply.
It is kind of hard to find Emerald City all by itself. I found this one, though.
That cake sounds awesome! Please return to this thread when you post the picture!
thanks for the suggestions
Here is the finished product. It's not the best I've done but my daughter was def. impressed. lol and i wanted to do the rainbow in stars and more colors but i ran low on icing.
I think you did a very nice job. Is "Dorothy" your daughter?
