I was inspired right from the beginning with this cake.
For a start, a very special lady ordered this cake for a friend's daughter's birthday.
Camilla turned 27 and decided to spend the afternoon celebrating this wonderful day with a host of best friends by going to see West Side Story.
I was given a free slate with the design and only told that Camilla loves dancing and that she was going to see the show.
So I wanted to capture both. The main part of the cake is a typical Manhattan skyline to typify Broadway. The top layer of the cake is a movie reel to reflect the adaptation to the silver screen and then main top scene is the NY street with the West Side Story billboard and of course, Maria & Tony.
The cakes are vanilla with white chocolate ganache.
Maria & Tony
The building was the only inedible part. It is carved styrofoam covered in fondant.
