Chocolate and Vanilla Buttercream-Check.
"Happy Birthday" slogan-Check.
Well, I did it! After an entire week of hard work it finally paid off! Little by little I pieced everything together last night to create a pastel masterpiece! The assembly of this cake took about 5 hours yesterday. Each tier is filled with chocolate buttercream while being iced with vanilla buttercream. The biggest and bottom tier is 3 layers and the middle and top tier are each 2 layers. I was most nervous about the stacking of this cake which was my first experience. I was worried that I wouldn't center it properly thus creating smudges all throughout the cake, however, it was a huge success! I piped pink flowers around the bases of each tier and, using royal icing as a glue, "pasted" the pastel flowers to the middle and top tier.
I piped "Happy Birthday Mickey J." along the bottom tier and finished off the top of the cake with a rainbow which I totally free-handed! Shown here:
I'm really excited to present this cake to the birthday girl! I hope she enjoys it as much as I enjoyed creating it!
