This cake was a joint effort between my best friend and I when we were in college. We decided it would be fun to enter in the school cake decorating competition for our masquerade themed winter formal our freshman year. With no real experience between us we were simply doing it for fun with no expectations to win. Imagine our surprise when we won first place based on a school wide vote. The entire cake is covered with fondant, and luster dust was used to accent the silver portions. The masks and feathers were made out of fondant and were also painted with luster dust. The scroll is made out of gum paste and we used food writing pens to write the poem we created about life as a culinary student.
