Number 60 Birthday Cake

was going for an antique look which is not my strong suit but turned out ok in the end, i really had a hell of a time finding the right color for this though lol. Anyway both number are carved from two 1/2 sheet cakes, the 6 is a pineapple cake torted w/ pineapple filling, the 0 is a chocolate cake torted w/ strawberry filling, iced in both MMF and MFF the color is airbrushed (i found that airbrushing really dries out and hardens the fondant more than kneading in color) also dry brushed some gold pearl dust over the whole thing, used RI for the pattern on top, roses are gumpaste and airbrushed ( i used tonedna's tutorial, thx Edna!) pearl border is fondant i used the 8mm size mold, side decoration is fondant i used leaf cutter for the shape. TFL!
