Prima Ballerina Cake

This cake traveled all the way to Vidalia, GA. Design was based somewhat on the party invitations. Vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream covered in fondant.

While in Argentina, my mother-in-law bought me some magazines on molding figurines in gumpaste and cold porcelain, because it seems to be really popular there and the sugar artists in Argentina do such amazing work with figurines. So, I got to do some studying and then some practice this weekend.

This cake was for a 4-yr. old I believe, so I got out my edible markers and did some coloring on this cake. It looks like scribble-scratch, but it's actually about the best I can do :P
