Lauren's Birthday Cake

Preliminary Preparations for creating
a birthday cake for my friend Lauren
McNamara's 8th Birthday Cake.

She had chosen to have a "makeup/Diva"
Cake! It was a lot of fun to create and
getting to see her face when she got to
view it for the first time was awesome!

The cake was Vanilla, Vanilla, Vanilla
four layers of vanilla cake, with vanilla
butter cream icing, vanilla fondant topped
the cake and the sides were basket weaved
with vanilla butter cream.

All of the components of the make up and
and shoe and pearls were created out of
edible vanilla fondant.

So much fun!!!
