This cake was made for a Purim themed birthday party. Purim is a Jewish holiday celebrating the victory of Queen Esther and the Jewish people over Haman's evil decree to kill them. The colors and some symbols are similar to Mardi Gras. The Birthday message is on a Megillah scroll, which normally holds the scroll of the book of Esther. This was also my first tiered cake (6", 8"). I borrowed many elements from others at CC. Thank you Antonia74, LacieLou76, and mommabear for your inspiration!
