Shhhhh..... it's a Silent Auction!
This cake was for a silent auction for a non-profit organization called Rehome Midwest. They strive to provide care for animals who would otherwise not have the opportunity. You can check out their facebook page here or their website here.
This particular cake was not up for auction itself, and frankly I don't know ANYONE who would want it! Only because it's styrofoam! It is a 10 inch round covered in royal icing and decorated with buttercream scrolls, shells and beads. The red ribbon is an actual ribbon and is not edible either, it looks good though!
The top was a quilted pattern outlined with buttercream and accented with little pearls... again, not edible!
The winner at the auction actually won this...
And the winner was a friend's boyfriend. He decided to use the gift certificate on a cake for her 21st birthday, a cake that's a 3D margarita! That cake will be started later this month so stay tuned.
I had pictures of past cakes on display also at the auction with plenty of business cards. I'm hoping it will get me a lot of future orders! I will definitely be doing this silent auction again next time... as long as I'm asked! (Thanks to Stephanie Batman for the awesome photo!)
