Jenna’s Piano Cake

March 2, 2009

  Jenna  loves French Culture, orchids are her flower of choice and her favorite colors are Black, White and Bright Pink. Her Birthday party was held at Nan’s Piano Bar, here in the quad Cities.

Jenna’s Birthday.

We created this piano cake to help her celebrate.

The cake is dark chocolate with a filling of raspberry sauce.

The cake is covered in fondant which we brushed with black piping gel to give it a “laquered” look.

The piano lid is held up with a miniature Eiffel Tower, also made from fondant and painted with Aztec Gold Luster Dust and sprinkled with Disco Dust to give it glitz. The top of the tower has a small diamond gem made also of  fondant. 

Fondant orchids and greenery peek out from under the piano lid. White Sparkle Dust is brushed on them and a sprinkle of Disco Dust adds that extra giltz.

Such a fun cake to make!
