This is the 2nd one of these that I've done (the 1st was for a man). Top tier is chocolate, bottom tier is white....all buttercream except for the lady's head, arms & legs (MMF).
Great job - but, I don't think 30 is over the hill - I'm only 32! I hope the 30 year old wacked you a good one! haha. All kidding aside, this is a great cake!
30 is YOUNG! Your cake is great, I love the theme. great job at lettering!
I love this! What size pans did you use? A friend of mine saw this and asked me to do it (or something similar) for her dad and uncle's (twins) 70th birthdays.
i think i used a 12" and 10" round....i love these cakes too!
I love it!! Would you share the directions to make this cake??
sking- i made the head, arms and legs out of MMF.....before icing the top layer, i cut out a tomb size hole and slanted the front end some so that the person would b visible....i put the body parts in position and piped the clothes and hair with buttercream....does that answer ur question?
I am making this cake this week for a friend and just wondering what color green did you use? I have already colored my icing with wilton's leaf green but it doesn't seem as grassy colored as yours.
i used the leaf green as well....if it doesn't look dark enuff, i sometimes add just a tiny touch of black to bring it down until it's the color i want....i didn't do it on this cake, but have found that making the border grass a tad darker than the smoothed grass looks better as well.....check out my 'school's out' cake for an example of this....good luck with ur cake for the twins!
yes, thank you I can't wait to try this cake!
Thanks!! I'll try adding some more green and if that doesn't work maybe I'll try a little touch of black. I made my man figures last night and I am dying laughing becuase I need a lot of practice with that part. My hands and feet almost look webbed!
~lol~ i'm still not great with modeling either....and my hair piping, whew! i really need some work there! :0) i can't wait to see how ur's turns out!
