1/2 vanilla & 1/2 chocolate cakes w/vanilla frosting covered in fondant. the accents are gumpaste and fondant. my husband built a board base for me w/ 4" high wooden dowels to make it slant & he added a thin wooden lip to keep the cakes from sliding. I added the b'day girl's business logo on the paper and markers. she spent time studying in florence so i put edible images of a famous building in florence.
