Bayou birthday cake

 This cake was for 16 year old girl's birthday party.  She's the oldest of 7 kids and her mother described her to me as "family-oriented".  She wanted to celebrate her big day with family who live on a bayou in Louisiana and that made for an easy theme.  The cake was a strawberry sandwich cake (strawberry cake sandwiched in between two layers of white cake) and covered in marshmallow fondant.  The tree stump, alligator, sign, cattails, and rocks were made of gumpaste.  The water was piping gel and the grass was icing.

Peace and Love,
