I made this cake last week for my husband's birthday. Although I am not Wilton-trained (but hope to be someday!), I really enjoy making fun cakes for our family birthdays. Here are some pics and simple instructions on how to make this piano cake:
|I used Scribblers to write the message on the cake- I had just enough keys to write "Happy Birthday."|
Underneath the keyboard it says "to a # pianist."
|I found these adorable tiny rose candles at our local farmer's market. They looked so cute on this cake. It would have been a bit cuter with green stems...next time!|
|The sharp is made from black licorice|
|Here is the finished product. It was really hot the day I made this, and the icing was melting. The "black keys" were threatening to slip off the keyboard so I had to get it in the fridge quick!|
My husband declared the cake a winner! :)
I'm not really a cake person (I prefer pie) but it was good. It sure didn't last long! :)
Maybe I can get my wife to make me one this year for my BD. That's pretty cool.
