Kentucky Derby 2011 Cake


About this design:

This is the cake I made for a friend's annual Kentucky Derby Party. The entire cake - from the jockey's cap to the red roses, pearls and riding crop - was edible. It was the 137th running of the race, and I used the same font as the Derby logo when I formed the fondant numbers (I'm a detail geek, what can I say?)

Components:

Dark chocolate cake torted and layered with black cherry jam and with vanilla swiss meringue buttercream, covered in vanilla fondant and gum paste decorations.
