Life's better with cake and a sprinkle of fairy dust
This cake was for my baby cousin Sheena’s 21st. We had a big party for with all the relatives invited from both sides of her parents’ families. The party theme was Red Indian, so all the ladies wore colorful feather headdresses and there was a desert themed photo booth.
We decided on a desert scene cake with a teepee, cacti and little Red Indian girl. She sent me a picture of her Red Indian costume her mum had bought on the Internet so I decided to put that design on the little sugarpaste girl. I made a teepee with rice krispy treats molded in a disposable piping bag to make a cone and then covered it in fondant and decorated in fondant cutouts of Red Indian symbols of nature. Around the sides of the cake, i made a desert scene with fondant cutouts.
The cake was made up of a chocolate truffle sheet cake and a passionfruit-pear sheet cake lined up side by side, crumbcoated and then covered in fondant. I also had some mini chocolae brownies that i added to the cake to give it more dimension.
The cake delighted the children at the party especially, with little hands reaching for all the colorful fondant decorations first.
