KSU Whimsical

First attempt at a tilted cake. Did this for a local cake contest....learned as I went. My theme was obviously KSU...but took it a step further and put our instate rival's mascot "in jail" on the back side! LOLOL They're Jayhawks....as if anyone cares!!!!!!!!!!! MMF was a mess for me....too dry and not a smooth application at all. Gumpaste flowers with floral ribbon and filler added. Luster Dust and Pearl Dust here and there. FUN but stressful!

LOL....well, in the construction process, I wasn't sure that it WOULDN'T fall! LOL I followed Colette Peters' instructions in her book, CAKES TO DREAM ON. She made it sound fairly easy......It made me breathe heavy!!! LOL And I had to construct it at home and drive it to the competition site! I made my husband drive and I held the cake AND my breath.
