Leopard Print Birthday Cake for friend.
A direct steal of CC member AngFox design. Loved it so much I had to try it. Leopard print is gel food coloring painted on buttercream. I also dusted gold on the leopard spots...they're showing up as just a light color but they look pretty in real life. Gum paste bow and roses. French vanilla cake with raspberry filling. I used 8", 7 and 6" and carved to get the inverted look. I learned I hate to carve cakes! Too many crumbs. But, a fun cake.
