It's a Zoo in Here!

I made this lovely cake for a slumber Party I went to last weekend with some of my best friends! And no, 25 is NOT too old for a slumber party!

This photo was sent to me by the lovely Kelsey because it pains me to try to something cool inside of a cake and then never know how it turned out!

This was my first attempt at zebra cake.

I'm told she loved the cake and look... she even wore the plastic tiara, buttercream and all haha.

21st Birthdays call for cake for sure!

21st Birthday Cake

I really loved making this cake. I got to use fondant and who doesn't love to do a zebra print? Everyone should order zebra print cakes from me... because I love to do them! Technically, This is only the second zebra print cake I've done, but there was that one tiger print one I did and it was the same thing... just orange lol.

I was really excited about trying to do the "HAPPY" suspended above the cake. I made the letters from candy melt, hoping they'd be stronger than fondant, but not too heavy. I embellished them with buttercream and silver dragees. Lovely!
