Today feels like a good day for purple! Purple is a funky color…Fridays should be a little funky…so we’re going to have purple cakes this Friday. (Yea, it’s a weak excuse…deal with it.)
This cake was covered in purple fondant and then decorated with black fondant accents to look like giraffe print. The “40” topper was made out of gum paste a few days earlier so it had plenty of time to dry.
*Quick reminder: The readers-only giveaway is ending tonight at midnight! I’ll admit, I had no idea what I was giving away when I announced it…but now I’ve got a really great selection of goodies to give the winner! It’s a great bundle of baking stuff! If you haven’t already, go enter today! And if you’d like a bonus entry, follow Cake Walk on facebook (if you already follow, leave a comment on the giveaway post saying so).
