What was your inspiration?
This was a fun cake themed from the one and only Elvis! I wanted it to be funky but not child-like so i did a simple stacked cake with a few different silouette of Elvis along the sides in addition to using the good ole' roll-ups off the candy/cookie isle to cut out gem shapes and stick on the sides. not too fussy & a lot of fun! The birthday girl loved it!
What are you most proud of?
Cutting out the Elivis shapes - sticky little buggers!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Take your time finding the items for your "cake - idea" file...the more time you research for each cake, the more personalized you can make your designs. It's worth it in the end!
