Running up the Wonky Cake
I was asked to create a 50th birthday cake for a wine connoisseur and marathon runner in Montclair NJ. I designed a three-tier wonky French vanilla cake with orange chocolate cream filling. The cake was covered in dark chocolate fondant, with violet and green stripes. The tier separators were decorated with green stephanotis flowers and I encircled the lower tier with glittering purple fondant pearls. The cake sat on a chocolate fondant base wrapped in a green ribbon. It was fun designing the runner, the biggest challenge is always what to do with the arms, I opted for the victor's pose!
