Birthday Pillow Cake

This pillow cake was fun to bake and decorate. I used two 8 inch square pans and chocolate cake mix and added about 3/4 cup of chocolate chips to the batter. I froze the cakes to later sculpt them. I will not freeze them next time because it was hard to cut without crumbling.

I used a serrated knife and after the fact. My son told me to use an electric knife next time. (great idea). I filled the center with buttercream and buttercreamed the cake until set. I rolled out my hot pink fondant and covered.

I made my fringe and cording with the fondant and attached with vodka. I scored the top to look quilted and made little buttons to decorate with.

I bought the tiara at Walmart for a dollar in the party goods. This is for my daughter in law's birthday but can be made for children's cakes also.. Nancy of Ca

It's super cool!! How long did it take you, if not a secret? How to make the other color without the artificial color replacement?
