DONUT Cake!!!

I'm trying to pretend like I'm biting it, but I didn't want to get too close and un-sanitize it!

This was my first airbrush cake, fun!! I love my airbrush, it makes coloring a lot quicker and gives added depth. The donut came out darker than I had wanted. It almost looks like a bundt cake. I could have used some white airbrush paint, if it exists, because my kit didn't have it.

This cake was for Mr. Guthrie's 95th birthday. He supposedly owns or sells a lot of the Krispy Kreme franchises. Cake was yellow cake with swiss meringue icing covered in marshmallow vanilla fondant. I airbrushed and then glazed the top with runny royal icing and piping gel. The logo was royal icing and totally broke, so I had to do a quick vinyl logo on top of the cake box, and it turned out fine.

Somebody wants a happy wife! Martina's flowers totally woke me up this morning, but it was worth it. Thank you, Gab! I love you!
