Tilting Split Sand and Sea Birthday Cake

Here was a challenge. One of our customers, inspired by Christopher Garren's Opposites cake on Amazing Wedding Cakes, asked us to make a split three tier birthday cake with a sand and sea theme! 

We designed a stable base to allow sufficient support for the tilting design, split down the middle.It is covered in edible sand and seashells! The bottom tier is a sand color fondant with flower cutouts, while the top tiers are a blue sea fondant with waves and fishes.

The tiers have almond cake with dulce de leche cream filling, red velvet cake with raspberry cream filling and chocolate fudge cake with cappuccino cream filling.

Created for the birthday of two twins, so we incorporated a series of favorite items for each one: Spiderman, fairy, high heel sandal, Converse shoe, Spongebob CD, a bikini. Delivered to a party in Clifton NJ.

Giuseppe Zanotti Blue Platform Sandal Birthday Cake

For a surprise birthday cake we started off discussing with my customer a set of Tiffany boxes and a pump. However through the creative process we realized that a favorite color peach needed to be incorporated into the design, so that explains the boxes! The square box is tied with a white fondant bow and pinned with a silver dragee brooch, with other edible dragees scattered around.

On top I placed a Tiffany blue colored Giuseppe Zanotti platform sandal shaped in fondant. I am particularly proud of the hand painted logo, it came out perfect!

Inside is a moist coconut cake (we discovered a great supplier) with the always popular dulce de leche cream filling.
