My daughter made this Glamour Birthday Cake Idea for a little girl's "make-up" birthday party. Her favorite colors are pink and purple - surprise - and her party theme is make-up, hair and fashion show (complete with red carpet). I think she did a beautiful job with the cake and I know first hand that her cakes taste as good as they look!
My daughter didn't like working with fondant at first but I think it's a favorite now; besides looking good, it helps to hold the cake in place when you have odd shapes.
I really enjoy watching her creations unfold because most of the time it's created as she goes. She's never had any classes and many of her cakes are just amazing!
I made this Fashionista Cake for my mom's birthday. (I won't say her age or she'll kill me, LOL!) It's a two-tier yellow pound cake covered in fondant that I painted with food color. The beading is also fondant. You can't really see it in this picture but the entire cake is also lightly dusted with gold luster dust.
The shoe is handmade and handpainted with fondant and food color, so is the lipstick. The purse is a small piece of cake covered in fondant and painted with food color. The trim of the purse is pink tinted buttercream. My family really loved it and I hope it gives you guys some great ideas!
