70s Topsy-Turvy Birthday Cake with Lights
Both of the images are of the same cake. The image on the left is the cake in a lighted room. The image on the right shows it after it was moved into the dimly-lit party hall with moving colored spotlights shining upon it. The left image isn't completely clear, but the cake was themed in a psychedelic flower-child style for a 60th birthday party.
Random swirls, flowers, and symbols adorn the cake in yellow, pale blue, pink, orange, and lavender icing. There are also delicate edible flowers and butterflies all around. I cut tiny squares into the tops of each cake and inserted a multi-color flashing light cube into each square. I then inserted 'shroom frames onto each cake, and each holds a different high-school photo of the recipient or psychedelic imagery.
The total height (with the cake top) was approximately 40 inches. Cake flavors were chocolate, orange, and lemon.
