This is the cake I made for my niece, Ashley's, 13th birthday slumber party on September 23rd, 2001. I had big plans for this cake which completely fell through because my fondant didn't work out. None-the-less, this cake still turned out cute. I used gum paste for the first time to make the bow, ribbon and tissue paper. I also made edible pearls for the first time for the dots on the larger tier and for the border at the base of the top tier. They really look like pearls too! The bottom tier is white cake while the top tier is lemon and I used an orange coconut cream filling for both.

There she is blowing out her 13 candles! They also managed to get away with a cake fight!
