Hot Lips

The Birthday Girl would be spending her Sweet Sixteenth birthday at camp so her mom surprised her with a party, complete with a giant cake.

The main cake is chocolate and vanilla marbled pound cake, with a buttercream filling. It's then frosted in buttercream with Hershey's kisses and drop flowers as the border. The lips are another matter...

I'm still getting the hang of carving cake into the desired shape. This is more of the pound cake baked in an oval, frozen, and then carved to look like lips. I used red marshmallow fondant to cover, then brushed over that with red luster dust. Not perfect, but my toddler could tell what it was supposed to be and that's good enough for me.
