High Heel Glam!

My sister inlaw Seana was planning a birthday party for one of her friends and asked me to do the cake. The theme was vintage barbie. I was again given total creative freedom with this cake. After a lot of brainstorming this is what I came up with. I am so happy with how this cake turned out. I absolutely love making gumpaste high heel shoes! This was also my first time making an anemone flower. It was a red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting.

This cake was for a girls 20th birthday. She told me that she didn't care what it looked like as long as it tasted great! All that I had to go by was that her favorite color was pink. It was fun and a little scary having the freedom to do what I wanted, especially since I didn't know her. So I decided just to do what I thought I would want if it were a cake for myself. Luckily for me she loved it! It was a strawberry coconut pecan cake with strawberry coconut pecan cream cheese frosting. Wow that's a mouth full!
