70's Groovy Birthday!

My colleague Norma is turning 40 today, St. Patrick's day. Her sister Marisa asked us to make her cake but Shhhhh! it's a surprise.  Norma thinks it's just her and hubby going out to dinner tonight but plans have been made.  Since Norma was born in the 70's and I know for a fact she loves disco, we decided to give her a disco themed cake equipped with her own disco ball.

Marisa requested we make a red velvet cake filled with cream cheese filling.  We covered the cake in lime green & hot pink mixed fondant to give it a Tye dye look.  The #40 is made out of gum paste. 

And of course we have our disco dancers dancing under the disco ball.  The disco ball is a Styrofoam ball covered in fondant squares, painted a silver shimmer with edible paint and then dusted with edible glitter. Our disco dancers were cut out of fondant/gum paste mix. 

Looks like they're having fun! Oh how I miss those days, lol.

Have a very groovy birthday Norma!
Happy 40th! and wishes for many more wonderful years to come.
