Day of the Dead Cake

I had an awesome time last night at the Lena Pope Home Sweetheart Dessert Fantasy Event at the Fort Worth Club! This was my second cake I submitted, with a "Day of the Dead" or Dia de los Muertos theme. The cake was red velvet on the bottom, strawberry in the middle, and red velvet on the top as well. The bottom and top layers were airbrushed black and green. The Skulls were made out of gumpaste, hand painted with food coloring. The "mosaic of tiles" on the middle layer were made out of fondant, and the flowers on top were made out of fondant and also airbrushed. What a fun, bright cake- right up my alley!
