Carousel cake

Every now and then I get to create a cake which gives me a sensation of child-like excitement. It was also the case with this cake, once it was finally put together.

An organisation, of which I’m also a member, had a theme park themed social event last night, and I had an idea to make a rotating and lit carousel cake to take with me. A friend of mine from the same organisation made me the rotating base, all other parts I made myself.

This cake was partly a hoax, as the only edible parts were the actual red cake with golden pearls and the unicorns made out of fondant. In the middle of the cake was a glass vase with star-punched paper and battery operated LED fairy lights. The carousel roof was made out of cardboard and craft foam sheets with more LED fairy lights (and carousel music playing mobile phone). The unicorns’ poles were made out of wooden barbecue skewers and plastic straws.

The actual cake had a lactose free raspberry quark filling and dyed buttercream icing.
