HOLLYWOOD CAKE

This cake was a referral from a very good pastry chef friend of mine named Yasmin.  She works with Danny who wanted a Hollywood theme cake for a birthday party.  This is what I came up with.  When I got to Danny's home to deliver the cake his house had been transformed to Hollywood 1936.  He had the red carpet leading into the house with bar tables, candles, and a photographer to take pictures of the guests arriving on the red carpet.  The backyard had a white piano set up, tables with black and white musical motif tablecloths, a screening room for showing a movie and a huge Hollywood sign on the hill.  Everyone was dressed in Tuxes, needless to say he had thought of everything.  The caterer was Scott from NewLeaf Catering and it was great to see him again.
This was an opera cake inside the fondant and decorations.  Love opera cake!!!

Update:
I just received this from Danny: 
Oh PAM!!!

I know Scott! He taught healthy cooking classes for me back when I worked at the LQ Senior Center and he was at the Heart Hospital. Great guy! Small world.
