Today I made this birthday cake. It’s f
or the little girl who’s parents needed some help. I’m donating this cake to them free of charge. I had to make it a couple of days early, but you’d be surprised how long all that frosting and fondant keeps cake fresh lol.
The bottom tier is one big round yellow cake. The top tier is a two layer chocolate cake. I covered the top layer in purple fondant and the bottom layer is covered in buttercream. I cut zebra stripes out of fondant for the
bottom tieras, well as the polka dots for the top tier.
I went with yellow buttercream for the piping work because I thought it w
ould really make the zebra print pop. It really turned out well.
I think the coolest part was I drew a picture of what I wanted this to look like and it came out even better than my sketch.
I thought the zebra print would be hard, but it turned out to be pretty simple all in all.
I covered my cake board in a girly pink wall paper sample for some added pizzaz. I hope little Courtney loves it. It’s probably the best cake I’ve made so far.
Today I also worked on an experiment for a crazy layer cake.
More on that later hahaha… I was trying to accomplish something but I was so damn tired after making the birthday cake that I ran out of any energy to come back to this.
