I was asked to create a cake for a 16th birthday party, the brief was a 2 tier cake with a bow on top, polka dots and the brightest pink as I could get…

Well it definitely turned out pink. This cake had a 8 inch vanilla cake on the bottom and a 6 inch chocolate cake on the top. The bow on top is made out of gumpaste and is in the same style as the single bow cakes I have done in the past. The number 16 on top is also gumpaste and was created using a template that I printed out and used to cut the numbers out. Before the gumpaste dried I inserted a thin wire into the base of each of the numbers which allowed me to secure them in the cake when I was putting it together.

As all the pieces were placed on this cake it really came together. I was so happy to hear that the girl and her friends loved the cake at her party.
