Belly Dancer Cake

My friend was surprising her husband with a dinner at a Moroccan restaurant with live entertainment from belly dancers.  She asked me to make a simple, fun cake with a belly dancer on it.  It was tough at first, but I ended up having fun with the colors!

Birthday Belly Dancer Cake

I did a 10 inch round chocolate cake, 4 inches high, filled with chocolate & chocolate chip frosting, covered in marshmallow fondant.  To give it a Moroccan theme, I alternated gold and teal rectangles around the sides of the cake with golden pearls.  The dancer & writing were printed with edible ink on rice paper.

Lakers Birthday Cake


A friend of mine asked me to surprise her husband with a Lakers cake for his birthday!  He's a chocolate lover, so I made a chocolate 4 inch high, 10 inch round cake, filled & covered with milk chocolate frosting .  I topped the cake with melted chocolate in the shape of the Lakers logo.
