Cake for a Hair Stylist

Last week, we created a cake for a hair stylist. The customer brought in a picture of the cake and asked for an exact replica. No problem!

We carved the blow dryer out of a chunk of cake and covered it with red fondant. Then we used black airbrush color to add dimension and shadowing to the blow dryer. And, finally, we added the stripes, personalized "B", and the power cord.

And all the accessories around the hair dryer were made of gum paste by yours truly.
