I mage this cake as a prop for our Ward's Roadshow this year. It is a dummy cake made with 12", 10" and 8" polystyrene drums, covered in left over fondant from previous cakes. The candles I made by wrapping fondant around cardboard tubes, leaving a space in the top for battery powered led tea lights to fit.
I wanted the cake to have a Dr. Seuss or Cat in the Hat feel, without being too specific, but I couldn't resist putting a few fish on to it :) They are hand cut and detailed with a Sharpie (well, it's not going to be eaten!)
I really wanted this post to be all about our Roadshow, but sadly the evening has been postponed (possibly until February). So I thought I would just share my cake for now, without giving anything away about our play - it is a competition after all!
