So I had this really cool idea of doing a Degas inspired cake. I wanted to use a Degas painting's color palette and do a kind of tie-dye effect with two or three colors and use whoppers with pearl dust to look like pearls. I wanted to make a standing ballerina of gumpaste (flat) on the side of the cake.
The idea changed to include whipped cream between the layers and hardened chocolate as a shell on the whole cake.
I just made a big mess and it does not look very good but this is all about trial and error. I am just experimenting and experimenting tastes good!
