I found out about a cake decorating contest that Ace of Cakes and the Food Network were holding on Youtube and just couldn't pass that up. So I started trying to think of designs for my entry. A few months ago my nephew drew a cake for me and I loved it so much I put it on my fridge. When he came over for Christmas I showed him I had his picture displayed. He asked "so did you make it yet"? Ha! I had no idea it was an order! So I decided to base my contest design on his drawing. Hopefully he'll be happy with it. :)
This was also the first time I made a video. It had to be under three minutes for the contest so everything is cut a little short but I'll try to make a longer video this weekend to demonstrate how to make a topsy turvy style cake.
This cake was made from a 6", 8", 10" cake and covered with fondant. The topper is made from rice krispie treats and gumpaste, and it says "Chris and Janell", of course. ;)
Here's the video if you're interested:
