Kombi Van Flower Cake
I'm so excited, I got to make two birthday cakes in the last week. First was the Poptarts cake and a few day later I got to make this one, I'm not sure what to call it, a flower cake, kombi cake, hippie cake? This cake was for a family friend I've know since forever, Happy 18th Birthday Emily.
I was told Emily loves kombi vans and know that she loves all things tye dye, so thetas exactly what I decided to do with her cake. For the cake itself I made a rainbow orange butter cake with orange buttercream, the flavour choice was for purely selfish reasons (I wanted to eat the leftover frosting). I really wish I got a picture of the sliced cake, the swirly icing looked so cool with the coloured cake.
To give you an idea of what the inside of the cake looked like, this is it sliced in half before icing.
How cute is the little kombie van salt and pepper shaker set!
