Birthday at Tiffany's Cake

Posted by Jennifer at 11:45 PM
Sarah was having a birthday party and called me up to ask for a cake. She said, "Do whatever you'd like." She told me that she likes black and white colors and Breakfast at Tiffany's. I tried to blend those as nicely as possible. I didn't tell her today how difficult this cake was but it was literally my worst nightmare. I covered the cake three separate times with fondant and for some reason, it just would not cooperate. At around 2:30am, I ripped off all of the fondant and started over yet again. I did the border detail four times and screamed a dozen times. Naw, just kidding (well, not really kidding :) Without getting into too much detail, let's just say I went to sleep at 4am completely exhausted! I hope the Audrey Hepburn look comes across on the top. Oh, I have to say that Sarah had the most unique cake flavor I've ever had to make. She wanted a chocolate cherry cake (chocolate cake with cherries baked into it) layered with sliced almonds and coffee flavored cream-cheese frosting. Sarah said she wanted a gourmet flavored cake so hopefully the flavors all worked together. I'll keep you posted!

I love this idea for a cake. I'm a huge fan of this movie. You're cakes are amazing. Now that I've met you, has anyone ever told you that you kind of look like Audrey?
