Did someone say sugar? Well, then toy should have seen the Wizard of Oz themed birthday cake we did the weekend, complete with a sugar version of the Emerald City.
My client brought me a great design that she had found on the internet, but since the birthday girl was only four, we thought that the image of the Wicked Witch’s legs coming out from under the cake was a bit too much. So I came up with a clever work-around where it looked like the Wicked Witch had just fallen into the cake instead of being crushed to death by it. I thought it was pretty clever to be honest.
But the centerpiece was definitely the Emerald City cake topper gone crazy. The thing was huge! We poured green Isomalt sugar into molds we had made using "silicone plastique", sold by "make your own molds". We made three different size columns and installed LED lights to illuminate the back of the twinkling city. It was really awesome!
The bottom tier was marble cake with chocolate ganache and top tier was coconut cake with coconut cream....yummy!!
