I decided that I wanted to make a cake version of my happy/sad cloud plushies. This is what we came up with. The cake was 2 layers of vanilla cake with a strawberry mascarpone filling. It was very difficult to cut into this happy little cloud, but it sure did taste good. The eyes and mouth were made from colored white chocolate and the rosy cheeks were made by sprinkling pink sanding sugar through a paper towel tube.
The cake was a huge hit I'm happy to say. Hooray for birthdays!
