Mardi Gras Mask Cake
For a 30th birthday I was asked to create a Mardi Gras theme cake. The bottom tier is vanilla cake with dark chocolate ganache and the top tier is chocolate fudge cake with a white chocolate ganache. The tiers are covered in light blue and purple fondant with stripes and pearls around the base. A string of gold colored beads adorns the cake as well as shooting stars, fondant twists and beads on wire. The Mardi Gras mask is made of sugar paste, decorated with leaves and then is hand painted with gold accents. We delivered the cake to the Forum Lounge near Union Square in Manhattan NYC.
