Original New Orleans 30th Birthday Cake
My friend was turning 30 and was from New Orleans. I decided to make her this cake. I had a mask and put plastic wrap around it and then formed gum paste over it until it dried. With the plastic wrap, the gum paste didn’t stick to the mask. The necklaces are also made from gum paste. I painted the words on the mask with gel coloring. The flavor and filling of the cake was peanut butter and jelly.
