Last week my husband's boss asked my friend and I to make a movie themed cake for his brother's birthday party! We were so excited to get our first real request for a cake, and were pretty excited about the cute theme too. The original plan was for the cake to be ready for a dinner tomorrow evening (Friday), but on our way back from NJ on Monday, we found out the dinner was changed to tonight...ugh! After a few mishaps (we're still learning a lot of techniques of tier layering) we have our finished product! Funny thing is, we both like this cake way better than what we set out to create. The Junior Mints are called Senior Mints per a special request since it is for a 50th birthday lol!
We are also thrilled with the way the 'popcorn' turned out. She had a very small flower cutout that you place on a small ball of yellow-marbled fondant then press it in with a skewer. It looks so real! I am nervous for everyones reaction at the dinner tonight, after all the hours of work we put into this they better like it! In the white section towards the red carpet, I have in a 4x6 frame a photo of a marquee that lists 3 of his favorite movies.
