I made a birthday cake for a girl who really, really likes the tv show Cake Boss. She was very excited to email me her pinterest board with all the crazy, colorful, fondant covered cakes that she loved. And, she was also adamant about the cake having two tiers even though it was only going to be served to a family of 4. haha! So, I made her this mini-cake with a 6 inch bottom tier and a 4 inch top tier. The bottom tier was chocolate cake with salted caramel buttercream and the top tier was chocolate cake with raspberry buttercream.
I made the butterfly, lady bugs and flowers out of gumpaste. The rest of the decor is made out of fondant. I brushed the flowers with edible luster dust to give them a little shimmer.
