Coolest Perfect 50 Birthday Cake

I baked this Perfect 50 Birthday Cake for a friend’s 50th birthday.

The cake is vanilla and chocolate on each end and then swirled in the middle. I baked the cake in a 1/3 Sheet cake pan and cut about a third from the end to stack it and make the “judge’s stand”.

I used the Wilton mini wonder mold pan to make the bodies and decorated them to look like her five best friends (I’m on the end in green!).

The heads and hands are made from rolled fondant tinted with copper gel food coloring, and the arms are sucker sticks coated with buttercream frosting (Use #10 or #12 round tip over the sticks and use light pressure to coat them with frosting as you pull them out of the bag).

The cake is frosted in butter cream frosting.
