2 tier birthday cake

Viola cake 1

This is the special 2 tier birthday cake that I made this weekend for my daughters 8th birthday party. A very small (4″ + 6″) cake with a replica of my daughters latest love, a dwarf hamster named Viola.

She is made out of gum paste and I think that she turned out really cute. My daughter was thrilled when she saw the cake.

I decorated the cake with pretty gum paste hydrangeas and some pink “fantasy” flowers and piped vines and leaves. I actually think that this design could work for a wedding cake or maybe a shabby tea party? -Without the little rodent on top of course :-)
