Alabama Crimson Tide Birthday cake
Crimson Tide cake. Top tier vanilla with buttercream icing covered in fondant. Bottom tier chocolate with buttercream icing covered in fondant. Bottom tier has a rough textured fondant rope border. It reminded me of an elephant’s tail! : )Elephant and emblem is edible marker (red eyes and “A”) and royal icing piped free hand on gumpaste. Houndstooth pattern is royal icing. Lettering is fondant outlined in royal icing.
