Oh, to be Sixteen Nowadays!

This is definitely more the trend the past few years! I made this cake for a girl that is turning sixteen today. I guess with all the cake decorating shows like Ace of Cakes and Cake Boss, plus all those cake showdowns on the Food Network, kids have a much grander idea of what a cake should look like! Ha, ha!

I truly enjoyed doing this cake. The Empire State Building and Statue of Liberty are made of fondant that I cut out free hand and then all the buildings are also fondant. The stars are molded white chocolate with a little silver dust on them. Many of the ingredients were purchased at The Chocolate Belles in Brick, NJ, on Chambersbridge Rd. The rest is good ol' buttercream, white cake, with a raspberry torte! Yum! It was a lot of fun! I hope the young lady is as pleased as I am with this cake!

Wonder what kind of cake she'll have for her wedding in a few years?
