i thought about making my good friend becky a succulent plant cake last year, but decided on pantone cookies instead. so when her birthday came around this year making this guy was at the top of my list.
i bought a flower pot from a dollar store in the neighborhood, filled it with dirt cake, and topped it off with little plants i sculpted out of fondant. i used food coloring like watercolors to paint on the gradient/realistic look.
ever heard of a sundog? yeah me neither until a few weeks ago when i saw one in person it's a rainbow ring around the sun. seriously google it - it's pretty crazy here's the wikipedia page to get you started
so i'm running behind on posts here, but trying to catch up! andrea - my gemini partner in crime - had a birthday a couple weeks ago and i made her a garden cake since she loves her brooklyn backyard garden.
i used oreos for the dirt, coconut for the grass and made the veggies out of fondant
this isn't her first crazy cake - check out the guitar cake i made her a couple years ago
