13th Birthday Cake for Lexi!

This past weekend was a tough one. I spent the weekend at Mom’s and we made 14 layers of cake, 76 fondant roses, and 80 fondant leaves. For my niece Alexis’ birthday, Mom and I decided we’d try something new and also use what we’ve learned in our past courses. We decided to make a two-tiered stacked cake. Hot pink and neon green were the birthday girl’s choice of colors and it turned out adorable! Each tier is two layers and in total it stood about 10 in. high. We had a blast, but it was a challenge and we learned new things as we went. My favorite part was getting to take a hammer to the cake 😉 In order for the cake to be stable, we had to drive 5 wooden dowels through the cake.
