This cake was made for my Mom!
The pot is real but inside are two 4 inch rounds (carrot cake) topped with crushed Oreo's (that you cannot see) and a sports ball cake on top. I used tip #32 for the cactus (the green parts) and piped out over 600 royal icing needles (that dried overnight) using the #2 tip. (what a labor of love that was!)
I had a lot of fun with this cake but sticking every single one of the needles in was INTENSE!
The flower is fondant, forgot to mention that.
Every person in the restaurant we were at for dinner tonight thought the cactus was real! I got a lot of questions about it and a lot of looks once we started cutting into it!
PS - If any of you have asked me a question (or if you just have a question that you want to ask but haven't) in any of the posts below and I haven't answered, please ask it again on this post and I will respond in a separate post tomorrow. I apologize for my lack of response but I promise to get everyone's questions answered as best I can!!
