Pepperoni and Pepper Pizza Cakes

My friend’s father was coming home from a long visit from Hungary and she was having a “Welcome Home” party for him. I couldn’t figure out what kind of cake to make so I made his favorite pizzas shaped into cake.

I made a yellow round cake. I made 2 layers, but used them as separate cakes. I iced both with red frosting leaving about an inch from the edge without frosting to make it look like a pizza crust. I used red candy melts for the pepperoni and drew pepper shapes with green frosting. Then I shredded white chocolate to make it look like shredded cheese.

At first everyone thought they were pizzas until they got up close to them.  I was glad they came out the way they did!
