A 50th birthday cake for a hair and make up girl
June 17, 2016
I have done a couple of hair and make-up themed cakes and they are lots of fun to do. This order came in asking for a cake similar to a previous one I had done. I made a few changes to the cake topper models to give it a fresh look. They were all made out of icing and were edible, apart from the shooting stars which were made from glittery card. With the warm weather at the moment, trying to make shooting stars out of icing, then getting them to stay at the top of a piece of wire is very tricky. As I have a craft room full of goodies I headed out of the kitchen and up to the craft room to pick out some fab card for the stars and numbers. These will stay in place and are not affected by the heat.
The cake was a vanilla sponge with jam and buttercream filling.
