This is pretty rare. This post is going up before the cake even gets picked up!
This was requested for someone who really loves Krispy Kreme doughnuts. It was a last minute order but I'm still pretty happy with the result. It's supposed to look like a Krispy Kreme box, in case anyone out there has never seen one! (what planet are you on though, seriously?)
Vanilla cake with vanilla bc. The polka dots were made from mmf (marshmallow fondant) and there are nearly 700 of them! SEVEN HUNDRED! I punched out about 100 but I have to admit that my partner in crime punched out and attached the rest. Rodney really came through for me on that. That was some tedious work.
The "Krispy Kreme" logo was made with white chocolate. It came out pretty great and I think I got the colors to match up pretty well. The only problem with this logo is that since I got this order on such short notice I was unable to make it up to the cake shop to get some Guittard chocolate and had to settle for Wilton's instead. Wilton's white chocolate has a yellow look to it and it drives me crazy. I didn't put the trademark logo on the plaque - it was just too small to try and replicate.
