I am definitely more confident when it comes to making a topsy turvy cake these days! I love making them and seeing the final product when it’s finished. This cake screams “teenage girl” and I love that about it!
Peyton loves to watch Ace of Cakes and really wanted to see something crazy like that for her cake. She picked out the colors and design for each tier and I did the rest.
She really wanted a big bow and the gift tag that said Happy 13th! I liked the colors but the bow looks a little icing-y from this angle…
The curly cues are made from jewelry wire in 2 different gauges. The thicker gauge could support the beads – I believe it was 12 gauge. The thinner gauge (18?) worked great for the smaller curly cues.
The cake itself was three flavors: vanilla with strawberry filling, red velvet with vanilla cream filling and chocolate with vanilla cream filling. I tasted the cream filling (I always do… I can resist the cake but filling? to die for!) and it was scrumptious! I have one more cake this weekend then I get to take a break!
