A Masterpiece In The Making

    |
This past week, I received the opportunity to assist one of my best friends in making a 3-tier, black and pink, flamingo-themed cake. I have seen many pictures of his whimsical and outrageous creations in the past, but have never witnessed what it actually takes to create such a masterpiece. Upon arrival, I saw that he had already began making the buttercream frosting. 5 hours later, as I am helping him stencil out the last of the fondant polka dots for the first and second tiers, the cake was finally on its way to being completed.

For those of you who are interested, I managed to snap some photos of the more interesting steps of the process. So, without further adieu, I would like to present a sequence of some "behind the scenes" pictures for the "Nifty Fifty Cake".

Wow, that cake is so cool! I love the idea of making a two color stripey fondant layer. And that flamingo is the perfect topper.
