Musical 30th birthday

by RedHeadBaker, in: Cakes, Carved cakes and crazy shapes

For my – very musically talented – lil brother’s 30th birthday in 2008, I created a piano cake!

I used a dark chocolate cake, carved that into a rough piano shape, frosted it with chocolate buttercream, and then covered it with chocolate fondant. The lid and music stand were also created from chocolate fondant wrapped around cardboard.

I then took a small piece of white fondant and cut sheet music. The piano has a correct number of white and black keys, too. The keys are white fondant piped with chocolate buttercream.

The cake got a standing ovation!

Cake as footwear

My friend loves (and I do mean truly adores) shoes. For her birthday at the office I made her another shoe cake (sadly, I have no pictures of the wedge sandal I made a few years earlier) – a pink clog!

The cake was chocolate with a vanilla buttercream, colored pink and was a huge hit at the party.
