Mardi Gras Masks & Harlequin Cake

 Mardi Gras Masks & Harlequin Cake  on Cake Central

Nobody around here really celebrates Mardi Gras, so I had to do a bit of research online for this Birthday Cake. I learned all about the King Cakes, beads and the 3 colours. (Makes me want to visit New Orleans next year!!)

I made the masks first out of gumpaste and detailed with tiny silver dragees. I used real ribbon for the masks.

Liked the idea of the harlequin pattern, so that was all done in fondant diamonds with larger silver dragees for detail. I copied the rope border from a cake found online.

Oh so pretty! You do such nice work. I always look forward to seeing your cakes. Mardi Gras is so much fun! I am doing my fair entry in this theme.
