Servings: 8 people
- 7" Vanilla Double Layer Cake
- 5 Shimmer Gold Gumballs
- 5 Shimmer Silver Gumballs
- 1/2 cup Shimmer Gold Pearls
- 1/4 cup Shimmer Gold Sixlets
- 1/4 cup Shimmer Silver Sixlets
- 1/4 cup gold sanding sugar
Remove cake from the plastic and set it on a decorating stand.
Choose the best facing side, and adhere one gumball to start. You will base the burst of gold and silver color off this space. I wanted to have mine fade in so I did not cover the whole cake.
Keep adding gumballs, Sixlets, and Pearls–alternating between each.
Once you are satisfied, flick the gold fleck stars onto the sides of the cake. You want them to be subtle, yet elegant.
Then, alternate at the star tip patterns (every one inch) between a gold and silver Sixlets.
Fill in the top middle with gold sanding sugar.
Add the remaining gold Pearls.
Place the topper in the center of the cake.
Add the starburst puffs, and the shimmer star picks.
This cake stores well and lasts up to 5 days in the fridge, covered.
You can use either chocolate or vanilla flavors.
Color It Candy is available online and in-stores nationwide.
You may need to snip your cake topper. I had to cute about 2 1/2 inches off mine.
