Under the Big Top!

This cake was made back in November for a good friend's daughter's 2nd birthday. The birthday girl loves the circus and I had fun making a "big top" themed cake for her. The birthday girl also loved the fondant stars and ate most of them! The bottom 2 tiers are covered in buttercream with fondant decorations, and the big top is covered and decorated with fondant. The clown is made out of gumpaste.
