Lorraine's Birthday Cake

It was my little sisters birthday last week. She was turning 23. I always try to make a cake that shows her personality or her favorite hobby at the time. Two years ago I made her this Flip Flops cake since we live in south fl and she loves going to the beach.

She's in Cosmetology school right now, so this year I made her a 3D blow dryer.

It's Chocolate cake with Dulce De Leche filling. Iced in Swiss Meringue Buttercream.(My new favorite buttercream, it's not too sweet like most powdered sugar buttercreams.)And covered in Satin Ice black fondant. I always buy precolored black and red fondant. Its really hard to get a true black or red when you color it yourself.

I used my Cricut Cake to cut out the "Happy Birthday" (Did I mention my boyfriend surprised me with a new Cricut Cake ?! He's AWESOME!)

I used the Birthday Cakes cart. The Plain Phrase creative feature key on page 73.

I'm extremely happy with way it came out. She loved it and so did all of her friends.
