A Touch of Whimsy

I almost forgot to post a photo of a birthday cake I made over the weekend for a friend's daughter.  This was a special request for my Spice Islands Carrot Cake, but I didn't want to spread it with the usual coconut cream cheese frosting, so I decided to have a little fun with it.  I made a gum paste ruffle and whimsical flowers to add a focus.  I surrounded the sides with a black lace white chocolate transfer sheet, draped it loosely with fondant, giving the whole cake a feminine, yet "Dr. Seuss-y" look.
