I was asked to make a cake for a fundraising event for my choir, New Amsterdam Singers. The theme of the night was “Side by Side” so I decided to make a cake that looked like 2 cakes, side by side.
This was one of the biggest cakes I’ve ever made. Not quite as heavy as the robot cake but still quite big. The bottom was a 14 inch square base, followed by a 10 inch square and an 8 inch square on top.
I used the pearls on one side and the Maggie Austin ruffle technique on the other side. I also topped it off with some swags.
Since the fundraising event was a cabaret night, I put the top hat on top to go with the theme of the night.
The cake is vanilla was salted caramel buttercream and covered in fondant.Tags: black, blue, fondant, pearls, ruffles, salted caramel, tophat
