This cake is based on a design in a Debbie Brown book. I made this cake for a colleague's daughter who was having a dancing theme birthday party. It took a lot of time making all the frills, adding extra white sugar paste after each layer to create the gradually changing colour effect. It was quite fiddly styling her hair and adding all the blossom flowers around her head. Although you cannot see it from the picture, the top of her white skirt is dusted with a lustre powder called moonbeams with ruby.
