What’s a fun cake for a girl’s night out or your bestie’s birthday? A little zebra and cheetah print, of course! These cakes are covered in fondant. The zebra layer has fondant stripes. The cheetah layer has had its spots painted on with a little food color. The bow is black gumpaste! How can you not smile when you see this coming your way?
Just a little close up as I was boxing it up.
I decided to call this cake Hollywood Mike because of the young lady’s love of Hollywood Glam as well has her desire to give a nod towards the former King of Pop. It was indeed a cake that utilized many different fondant and gum paste techniques which was extremely enjoyable!
I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
The cake in it’s full glitz and glory!

Yes, it’s made of cake. And it’s sitting on top of an 8″ round cake. Since the customer was on a budget, I scaled back the usual fondant covered extravaganza so I could accommodate her price range. I think it still came out really cute, and the purse is all edible.
Let me first apologize for the poor quality of the photos. I did this cake a day ahead of time and I was not there for the pick up or the pictures. I do make real masks out of leather and so I was very excited to make this cake. I hope it’s the first of many in this theme. (BTW- That “18” candle was not my idea!)

The Feather is real, not not edible

I’ve been going through old photos. This is a Sweet 16 cake I did for a teenager, who was killed a year later. I had so much positive feedback from her family and friends about this cake. Although the celadon / lime green color was not my choice, I tried to make her cake look like the Cinderella fantasy she wanted. I think it came out well, and I’m looking forward to future orders for a similar theme.
Vanilla cake filled with marzipan and almond butter cream. Coverd in almond buttercream and royal icing.

Glass Slipper- What's a Cinderella cake without the kicks?!
Full Table View- I think you can see a bit of the "Free" cake the hall threw in for free for their party. No wonder they wanted one of mine! 😉
