Monochrome to Paris with Love x

Here is another birthday cake made in the month of December for a 90th Birthday Celebration.  The cake is a very simple and stylistic monochrome two-tiered creation. 

The birthday boy…no, gentleman (probably more appropriate) has a love for the wonderful architecture in Paris and so the cake was themed around this.  The cake is a rich and delicious carrot cake spiced with cinnamon and frosted with a sugary vanilla cream cheese buttercream. 

It was finished with a hand drawn Eiffel Tower using edible ink – for which I cannot take the credit – The talented Gareth Thyer  bravely took on that task!  I think the finished cake was very elegant and appropriate for a 90th birthday, take a look…
