Musical Cake with notes
Latu needed a cake for Kalatiola's 18th birthday. Because she's really musical, we decided to do a piano on the bottom tier and musical notes all around the top tier. For an added effect, I made musical notes out of fondant and attached them to 18-gauge flower wire so that when they dried and hardened, we could just place them in the top of the cake. Both tiers were Strawberry Cheesecake Cake (strawberry cake with strawberries baked into the cake layered with cheesecake filling and cream cheese frosting). The banner at the bottom was also fondant. In order to make this, simply roll out a long thin strip of fondant (I use homemade marshmallow fondant). Take a few straws and space them out on the counter. Then lay the fondant strip over the straws to make it look like it's wavy. Let it dry overnight and then it's done! You should try it sometime!
