Casablanca Prom Cake

Casablanca Prom Cake

May 2010

Of course I was involved in planning the prom at the high school where I taught in Florida! ¬†Instead of opting for catered dessert at the venue, the kids all wanted one of my cakes. ¬†For this one, the dance’s theme was Casablanca – 1940s Hollywood glamour meets Morrocco. ¬†Fondant paisleys and tassels, Moroccan and Arabic-inspired forms, and bright colors that matched the theme decor.

Of course I was involved in planning the prom at the high school where I taught in Florida!  Instead of opting for catered dessert at the venue, the kids all wanted one of my cakes.  For this one, for a Venetian-masquerade-ball-themed dance, I went completely over-the-top.  Topsy-turvy layers, black-and-white fondant, wired decor, lustre-dusted gumpaste masks, tulle, and loads of feathers.  If some is good, more is better.
