A Bright, Funky, and Fun Cake. But is it Modern or Retro??
I'm not really sure how to classify this cake. I wanted to do something that was different, bright, fun, and modern. But when I look at it... I see the 70's... Kind of feel like there should be peace signs all over it. But then again... maybe it's more of a modern design... Either way... It's most definitely "out of the ordinary" for me. It was a fun cake to watch evolve. And quite honestly, I was terrified when I first started that it was going to be an utter failure. But I really like how it turned out. And apparently a lot of others liked it as well.
At the show Thursday night, it got an awful lot of attention for such a little cake! Go figure!
I started with a black background and created some strips of fondant to go up the cake in sets of 3. Pink, Green, and White were the base strip colors. From there, I used various cutters to remove sections of the fondant and replace with coordinating colors.
So what do you think? Is it modern or retro?
