Carousel Cake is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this carousel cake for my youngest daughter when she turned one. At the time I was relatively new to cake decorating and was happy to find that this cake was very easy to complete. I used a toothpick to make the "X" pattern around the side of the cake and covered the lines with stars. I think I used either a shell or bead boarder around the upper and lower edge. Everybody at the party was impressed with look of the cake and I was only a beginner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was one of the first cakes I ever created and I still can't believe I did it! It looks absolutely beautiful when completed, but really isn't too hard if you know how things work. It is a HUGE cake, though, so be prepared to have lots of left-overs unless it's for a large party. It is definitely a hit and I would highly recommend it.
