Couple of days ago I shared with you how to make Gumpaste Mardi Gras Mask and today we are going to use it to decorate a cake. Design of the cake is really simple and you can make pretty much all of the decorations ahead of time which makes the cake assembly an easy task.
To make Mardi Gras Cake you need:
Cake - use your favorite cake recipe. I love my Velvet Pound Cake, Chocolate Cake or simple Sponge Cake
Frosting - you can use store bought frosting, or make delicious Swiss Buttercream
