My father in low 70th birthday cake

My father in law's birthday cake in his favorite color and flavor. Carrot cake with extra everything, covered in golden sugar paste with edible lace. Got to use my airbrush gun for the first time, to color the cake in gold, which works very nicely. The only downside is that the cake is not the only one that got painted today....... our cat at home is as much golden and sparkly now. Also something new for me in todays cake is that I have used a "dummy" for the lowest part of the cake. That is no real cake, just a dressed up styrofoam base. I used that to get the height of the cake and the illusion that there is a 3-storey cake instead of just two. It was a real wow experience when it was rolled into the banquet hall yesterday. I just had to remember to remove the "dummy" before any of the guests would try to get a piece of it.
