So it's been a while, but I finally found the opportunity to bake another cake! Yesterday was my cousins’ birthday and since the last cake was very hush-hush I planned this one thoroughly.
I actually wanted to do this design for a while and I was given full artistic freedom on what the cake should look like or be.
The cake is made to look like a bed, I made the head & footboard a week prior to let the gum paste dry and luckily that made the curlicue on the headboard stick and not fall off. I hand painted all the blue and gold but used an airbrush for the cake board. I also used a texture-rolling pin for the 'blanked'.
The cake itself is red velvet with cookie dough filling.
