Portfolio: Pink Zebra Birthday Cake

Hello everyone!

Today I had the pleasure of delivering an adorable pink and zebra patterned cake for a lucky little girl!  Addison turned one and her mom picked a cute theme of pink with zebra accents since her folks are "wild about her!"  I wish I had taken a picture of Addison's mom; she's 22 weeks pregnant and looked cute as a bug in her black sundress with hot pink mardi gras beads! 

Here's a side view of the cake...I really like using those mirrored scalloped boards!  Not only are they clean looking, but if you have fun pattern or texture, the mirror effect emphasizes it.

A full shot of the cake. I crafted ribbon roses in white, pink, and black along with lots of fondant "beads."  I like to think that this was what a stylin' little girl's jewelry box would be like.

The cake was vanilla with strawberry filling and buttercream icing.  I made a small smash cake to go along with it, but I totally forgot to take a picture of it.  It was solid pink with black polka dots on the side, a black pearl border, and an 'A' on top piped to look like it was made from zebra print.

My painting on fondant has gotten much better...I was very pleased with the script I created for this "wild" cake.

I had a lot of fun making this little beauty and I was very thrilled with how it came out.  Happy first birthday, Addison...may you have many more!

Happy Caking,
