Music-themed cake and sugar sculpture wows crowd.

This cake was created for a very talented person in the music industry. Her amazing story is a very long one and so we decided to communicate all the fine details on edible sheet music that you see falling from a replica of her favorite music stand.

All of the instruments are chocolate replicas of her very own favorites.

As she is a child of the 60s, we chose Gerber daisies to adorn the sculpture. The flowers are sugar. The floating musical notes are also sugar.

This cake tells a long musical life story. The sheet music is edible as are all the instruments and flowers. Even the music stand is sugar!
