While it certainly wasn't technically difficult, I had a blast making it!
The bottom tier is buttercream with fondant stripes, and the middle tier is buttercream with fondant circles. For the top tier, I sculpted a cake into a mega cupcake shape. I used an impression mat to make a cupcake liner out of fondant, and I topped the cupcake with fondant "icing" as well. All tiers got a multi-colored fondant ball border.
The cake still needed a little something, so I fashioned some fondant balloons and put them into the cake with wires and finished off the sides of the cake board with some cute ribbon I picked up at Michaels recently.
Have a great weekend!
