Libby Lane's Circus Cake

This is another older cake from my first year of decorating (2010). WASC cake with vanilla American butter cream filling and icing smoothed with viva method. All edible hand-sculpted fondant characters included elephant, mouse, 3 clowns, dog and hoop of fire, lion, seal with ball, tiger, monkey, 4 2D trains, balls, banners, tassels, blankets, hats, balloons, and other misc. items.

This is just incredible – I can’t imagine how long it must have taken you!

zahra ...

Peggy Does Cake ...

It’s a terrible mess! It looks like cake exploded into a buttercream circus!

zahra ...

Well yes hehe! there is alot on it..but i dont know if mess is the right word! circuses are supposed to have a lot going on!
Your cakes are so beautiful, i am inspired !!!I cant believe you only started a year or so ago!

Peggy Does Cake ...

Well knowing what I know NOW, I would definitely limit the items on the cake. But when you’re newer, you just do what you’re told. hehehe.

Alena ...

Your comment on mess made me laugh! :-) :-) :-) How beautiful, but very hard work!

Your fondant characters are amazing. I can’t believe these were made shortly after you started decorating cakes! You are being a little hard on yourself! I’m sure your client loved the cake.

Haha….Peggy your comments are funny- I have to admit, I was overwhelmed with all the detailed figures on this cake…I was thinking, “man, that would’ve taken me a week solid-no sleep to come up with sooooo many decorations!!” But that being said, there are lots of ‘more-is-better’ people out there who love having lots to look at and ooo and ahh over. I bet this little girls just loved her cake :)

haha honey, yes some think “more is better” – but NO ONE is THIS much of a “more is better” kind of person! teehee. The fondant work took about 55 hours. The worst thing about this cake, though, is that (remember I only bake for fun?) I had 2 other cakes this weekend… 1 was a Sweet 16 for my niece (4 tiers tall!!) and 1 was for a friend’s Christmas party. I think I slept for 3 days straight after these were done.
