This cake was sour cream chocolate cake with vanilla bean Italian meringue buttercream. The theme for the birthday party was minions and it was being held at a climbing gym so the two themes were combined in the cake!
The cake is composed of two 9" round tiers stacked on top of each other covered in one giant piece of grey fondant. The cake was carved before being covered in fondant to give the illusion of a climbing wall. Small pieces of brightly covered fondant were added to look like the hand grips.
Pieces of grey fondant were used to make the ropes for the minions to climb up.
