My first grandchild, which is a girl, is due Mardi Gras day. My daughter requested a cake that looks like a King Cake. This is a vanilla yellow cake baked in an oval pan. The cake was torted and filled with ganache (YUM!)! It was then iced with butter cream, smoothed, and the center was cut out. Then it was covered with strips of colored fondant, then airbrushed. A poured glaze, followed by sprinkled pink sugar completed this project.
You really can have your cake and eat it too!
