Girls Just Wanna Have Fun Cake
by Geri Yost
It is easier than it looks, although I hope my customers don't find out...
The bodice is rice krispy treats covered with fondant. Only the skirt is cake. The dowel is screwed into the base.
I measured where I wanted the skirt to end up and secured a round disc of wood about an inch thick, like a donut. I then sent a screw right through the "donut" and dowel. Bam! a support.
The skirt was on a cake board on top of another wooden plate so it would be supported well. I stacked (and supported) 4 layers of cake, buttercreamed them, covered them with fondant and then did the ruffles. It was very easy.
I then placed the bodice on top of the cake and applied the bandeau. I made a wide belt to conceal the attachment.
The beads and letters were made with a plain old Wilton Silicone form. This was for an 80's themed party at an actual disco. The outfit was made to replicate the birthday girl.
