carousel cake

Yep, you read that title right. That means that the carousel cake wasn't a total disaster! ha! Now, I've said it before that I'm no expert obviously! But I thought the cake was pretty cute.
Excuse the lighting in the photos...it was 1:30am when I took these!

My inspiration was this cake. Had I had more time, I would've used bigger animals for the carousel. Maybe cookies? And I would've used candy sticks for the poles. Or I thought that it would look cute to punch holes in the top of the canopy so that the straws could come through, then add a small gumdrop at the top of each. But, with just 2 days notice to make the cake I was happy with the outcome. And Career Day went very well!
