I made this High School Musical cake for my High school musical crazy friend’s 21st birthday! Used some of the ideas from this site and adapted them to produce an easy cake in an evening.
The base is just a flat chocolate cake done in a roasting tin. This was then covered in rolled white fondant icing. I then used red fondant icing at the two sides. I placed 3 chopsticks vertically at each side, draped the red icing over and molded it to get the curtain folds. I then pulled out the chopsticks and pinched the curtains at each side and put a little more red icing over for the curtain tie-backs.
The top of the curtain was done in the same way, and all outlined with strawberry lace sweets. The High School Musical letters were cut from yellow fondant icing, with silver decorative balls stuck on with writing icing. The ‘Rachel’ and ’21’ were molded from green icing, and decorated with small chocolate stars.
The High School musical cast was printed from a picture off the internet and laminated (thanks for the idea from this site!). An altogether very quick and easy but effective cake!
