Optical Illusions Cake
This colorful cake is cut out for fun! Using bold Primary and Neon Fondant and the inlay technique, it?s a breeze to add decorations as bright as the party balloons. Top it off with a large bow and ball border.

Rated 3 out of 5 by kellit from This is a great starter cake! My favorite time saving tip - just pipe a bead border on the cake with buttercream. I can never get the fondant balls to be exactly the same shape/size and I have a hard time getting them to stay in place without rolling around for a bit. It is too time consuming. Much faster and easier to pipe them with buttercream!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Denia from I love how the fondant decorations make a simple cake look beautiful, and the work of making one circle with the center of another color gives it a more sophisticated look. Also the bow on top of it simply makes it look great, a good finish touch, but I would have make it in a matching color instead of plain white.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anabell from This was on of my first cakes. Everybody loved the idea of the dots, they though it was very modern and different. I did a fall cake using the same technique. Some friends already asked me to do their cakes for their daughter's/son's birthdays. I think is a medium difficulty cake specially when you do the inlays as if you don't paste the decorations properly, when you are covering the cake it tends to expand the fondant and it leaves spaces between the decoration, that was really the only challenge.
