I have managed to rustle up a cake for a friends daughter's birthday this week also. She requested a disco mirror ball for her party as that was the theme. Well that was gonna be a cool challenge.
I created a chocolate cake for the base cake and covered it in chocolate buttercream and then 'hot pink' fondant.
I created the ball by making 2 dome shaped chocolate cakes and sandwiching them together to make a sphere. This was then coated in a vanilla butter cream. I knew I was going to have to tile the cake with tile squares of fondant to create the mirror ball effect and buttercream would provide a better 'stick' than ganache which would harden too quickly.
It was a tough one and it is perhaps a little more Lego Death Star than mirror ball but I have a feeling the 6 year old girls will love it all the same. How could they not ? - hot pink, chocolate cake and glitter - its all good.
