This cake was for an 89 year old who still enjoys square dancing and ballroom dancing! I hope to be so fortunate to still be able to dance at that age! The 6" cake was made from carrot cake and vanilla cream cheese icing. The cake was covered in a butter pecan flavored fondant.
The dancers on top of the cake were made with fondant as was the lettering on the cake board. The cake was wrapped with a black ribbon and cream cheese dropstrings and piping completed the design. The 'Happy 1st Birthday Bella' was a last minute addition for their puppy who is just turning 1 this week and they didn't want her left out of the celebrations!
This blog will follow my adventures with cake, pastry and all things sweet!
