Madeline's Wonderland

This was the cake I made for my daughter Madeline's 6th birthday. It was neopolitan flavors with chocolate frosting and white chocolate ganache. It was a bit of a balancing act. I should have used and anchored pipe as support but just used dowels and it tended to want to wobble. Luckily we didn't have to transport it. My wonderful friend Jessica (aka mrsmudrash) covered and decorated the pillow. The hat brim was a challenge. In the end I used sheet metal flashing cut just a bit smaller than the brim to be flexible and supportive. The flowers, tag, smile and steam are gumpaste. All else is MMF or MMF with a bit of gumtex added for strength (like the tassels). I used black edible marker for the M/6 on the tag. This was a ver fun cake to make!
