Hey Hey Hey... it's Fat Tuesday!

As if New Orleans didn't already have enough to celebrate with the Saints winning the Super Bowl, today is Mardi Gras!

Now, there aren't many Mardi Gras celebrations here in Georgia, and I would dare say there's not a lot of beads given out either, but I did have a customer that wanted to celebrate her Sweet Sixteen with a Mardi Gras inspired cake.

We decided to go with a tilty / wonky cake design, covered in fondant.  We decorated with fondant stripes, polka dots, ribbons, and even a bead border.  We even made the mask out of gumpaste!  Some feathers at the top and around the cake board added that little extra flair that the cake needed!

As always thanks for stopping by!
