I was invited to a disco themed party and asked to bring a “simple cake.” So of course the obviously simple choice was to make a disco ball shaped cake, right?
Several hours and lots of silver dust later I ended up with a pretty awesome cake! Katy (my head cake decorator,) had the brilliant idea to make the bottom half of the cake out of rice krispies. It was brilliant for 2 reasons: rice krispies are super stable to hold the rounded bottom of the cake. And, the birthday girl is allergic to wheat but she can have rice krispies. The cake looked great in the shop but when I set it up with cassette tape cupcakes it all came to together in a pretty impressive, decade-appropriate way.
