hey all
i have some pictures of an amazing cake!  my ex-roomie made it for my birthday last year (it was a carebear/rave party - adorable)

anyhoo, she did such a wonderful job on the cake, i just had to show it off.  she even took some pics along the way as she made it, so i can give you a sort of tutorial; you can pretty much guess the way she made and assembled it from the pictures.  

here goes:

the wonderful cake all finished up!  note the super freaking cool rainbow-slide made from pipe cleaners

and the sort-of tutorial:

step 1: roomie used regular boxed cake mix and made 3 circle cakes
step 2: stack cakes as shown

step 3: mix blue food coloring into white icing then cover the cakes
step 4: use white icing that comes in a squirt-type bottle (sort of like cheese in a can but with frosting) to form clouds
step 5: buy a package of star shaped sprinkles and then painstakingly pick out all of the yellow ones; apply to cake
step 6: add care bears (these are the inedible plastic toys that come from $0.25 machines - my ex told me he bought tons of these guys for the party and a woman with a child looked at him like he was a pedophile stocking up on supplies lol)

step 7: add pipe cleaners as a rainbow slide, bring to table, and present to unbelievably grateful roommate!!   Grin  Grin  Grin
