New Year 2008

New Year 2008 on Cake Central

I made this cake for my parents' annual New Years Eve Euchre party. The cake is 2 tiers; the bottom tier is a 2 layer 8x2" square vanilla cake with strawberry buttercream filling and the top tier is a 2 layer 6x2" round chocolate cake with raspberry buttercream filling. I used 5 straws to support the top tier. The cake is frosted in buttercream and I used a diamond impression mat on the sides of the cake and inserted gold and silver dragees at each intersection. Black boarders are chocolate buttercream piped on with a round tip. The stars made out of fondant a few days ahead to help harden and was brushed with gold and silver glaze and pearl dust.
