Pagoda Cake

I made this for my Husband's Black Belt Cermony. The roof is Gumpaste, "glued" together with almond bark. The top Cake is a dummy cake (my first). I used Swiss Meringue Buttercream (also a first) and loved it! The doors and windows are also almond bark. I painted all the trim/glue with a mixture if Gold Pearl Dust and peppermint extract so all the gold stuff tasted minty!. Three layers of cake, chocolate, white and carrot, with the buttercream between each layer. The kanji on the roof says "karate".

hello!! great work! How did you get the roof to dry in the proper shape? TIA

the roof was made of several peices of hardened/dried gumpaste that was rolled out very thin, cut into shapes, dried and then "glued" together. then i just set them against mugs and bowls while the "glue" hardened.
