I am calling this cake the "Burlesque" Cake- but it was actually for an awesome party thrown for Jenna Rabideau who owns Halo Salon on Camp Bowie, Halo Brides Hair & Makeup, and her newest venture "Halo Artists Group"- a DFW talent agency that specializes in all the "behind the scene" talents: hair/makeup/photography/set design etc. The party was a joint birthday and launch of Halo Artists Groupe- showcasing all their great work! The party theme was kind of a mixture of circus/burlesque/oddities, and Jenna requested the cake be black and red. I had so much fun making this cake! I love when clients give me free range to basically do whatever I want along the lines of the theme. The tiny top quilted tier, and red and black striped tier were both almond cake with buttercream filling. The black tier which had a "fishnet" texture, and red lace border was a 9" red velvet cake with cream cheese filling, and the bottom harlequin cake was a 12" quadruple chocolate cake- chocolate chocolate chip cake, chocolate buttercream with drizzled chocolate!! The roses were made of fondant, airbrushed, disco/sparkle/and luster dusted, along with black glitter leaves.
