Mardi Gras Cake

Mardi Gras Cake on Cake Central

This is a cake I did for a combined 30th birthday. They wanted white chocolate icing with chocolate ganche filling and triple chocolate cake. It tasted really great but I am not sure I will make the white chocolate icing again. It was really hard to work with. The consistency was hard to pipe and there wasn't really a good way to thin it out without change the taste. It also didn't color easy either. That is why it looks a little tye dyed. But all in all I am pretty happy with the out come. The masks were made with gum paste and then colored with americolor soft gel paste thinned out with vodka and a little luster dust added. This one definitely had to had a few gray hairs to my head. It was all worth it because they loved it and it really did taste amazing! Thanks for looking!
