Leopard Print Birthday Cake
This charming birthday cake is based on a design by the Pink Cake Box. My cake is a hand painted leopard print on fondant. The cake itself is a white cake colored hot pink with chocolate and yellow cake leopard spots baked into the cake. Will add a picture when I have one! The pink bow is made from fondant with some Tylose powder added. I used a bow tutorial from the amazingly talented Leslie Wright of Royal Bakery. The “jewel” I added to the bow was from the Michaels craft store. The shamrock on top is gum paste and represents the fact this sweet little girl was born on St Patrick’s Day! The bottom tier has 3 8"x 2" layers filled and covered with chocolate ganache. Top tier is 2 6″×2″ layers. I love the fun mix of colors and the way the leopard print turned out!
