This cake was created for the season closing of the North American tour of the Broadway production of The Wizard of Oz. Because it was for a stage production, I felt it needed to have a stage present in the design. I hand-painted the scenery and sculpted the accompanying decorations from both modeling chocolate and gumpaste. The cake was french vanilla with a dark chocolate ganache filling and vanilla buttercream icing under fondant. It was meant to serve 50-55 people, but I had to go a bit bigger to best achieve my vision.
