Carnival Guest Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids

We love carnival themes.  When we saw this bright and cheery dessert spread from Cake Designer Marisa Simon, we fell in love.  Our favorite detail on the table?  Those ice cream cupcakes!  We love the technique Marisa used to make the frosting look like ice cream!  The clean detail work of the diamond, striped, dotted cake is also fabulous.  Marisa bought all of the vessels at the Container Store.  She also made the paper decorations (labels, banners, and popcorn boxes) herself.  Other sweet treats included carnival staples like candy apples and cotton candy.  Fantastic job!

    Just preparing my first themed babyshower for sunday brunch… and getting rather nervous about putting it all together!!

  • This is fantastic! The look is so clean and crisp and the accents are amazing.

  • Wow – how amazing are those cakes! I had a go at baking something similar for my son’s birthday recently – though they were nowhere near this standard, I have to say. I love these ice cream cakes. Before making mine I did some web research and they seemed all the rage in the US. Here in the UK, I’ve yet to see any. Who knows I could have made the first here! You can see my efforts on my blog.http://buttercupdaysuk.blogspot.com/2011/05/what-swell-party-it-was.html
