more cake

yeacob...i expect this to be your wedding cake! directions on how to make bellas birthday cake after the jump!

The striped icing effect on the cake is the edible creation of confectioner Thomas Haas, owner of Thomas Haas Fine Chocolates in Vancouver. His wife Lisa opened up to and explained how it can be done:

1. Cover each cake tier with a "mask" of white fondant [a thick, malleable icing]. Stack tiers from largest to smallest.

2. Separate one package of fondant into 5 batches. Use food coloring to tint each batch a different shade of green.

3. Roll each batch of fondant into a thin sheet and cut into strips of varying width.
4. Attach the strips around each tier using stiff royal icing as glue.

5. Place red, yellow and green Gerbera daisies around the bottom of each tier.
