Claire and I had the privilege of making a carnival themed birthday cake for a 6-year old's birthday party this past weekend. We tried a new technique - painting on gumpaste and frosting - and it ended up working out really well. We are quite proud of the finished product:
It was a marble cake with chocolate buttercream filling and vanilla buttercream frosting. Everything you see is edible except for the wires that are attached to the balloons! :) Another cake will be coming up next week!
