50th Birthday cake

Do you sell this cake? Yes Name of website or online shop Locally Only Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Two tier cake 6" & 8" rounds. The top tier design was made using icing sheets - cut with a punch cutter. Then painted with liquid gold dust (I was going to try the pre-colored gold Wilton icing sheets but my local store was out of stock). The bottom tier was covered with strips of two color modeling chocolate/fondant. Using my Kitchen Aid roller attachment, I rolled out pieces of black fondant & white modeling chocolate, glue them together and rolled out again. Use a template to cut the strips out all the same size (see photo). Glue the rectangular part of the strip to the cake, but not the triangle section. Use a paint brush to help roll & attach the tip of the triangle to the opposite side to reveal the underside color, then add the next strip. Be sure to roll the edges while the modeling chocolate is still pliable. Trim off the tops of the strips.
