I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Another Edward Gorey cake...I think this will be an ongoing theme for these particular friends. The Doubtful Guest is gumpaste, something that should be an easy thing to work with, but I had issues. It went from sticky to rock hard in a nanosecond. Maybe next time I'll read the directions!

The birthday girl's name will be written on the bottom, but black frosting bleeds everywhere so it'll have to wait til we arrive at the party.

It is too beautiful to eat! Smiley

Never worked with gumpaste, and from your description think it will stay that way.  Cheesy

Thanks! Here's the link to the recipe, which I found to be most delicious even though it begins with a box cake mix.

Recipe Girl website

She has a classic buttercream recipe on there too, and it made a nice "crust" even in my horribly humid area. Win win!
