Mazy’s Birthday Cake – Chicago

I really enjoyed making this cake! Mazy’s husband ordered this custom cake for his wife’s 65th birthday celebration.  He wrote a play called So Anyway… about their family and wanted a playbill on top of the cake.  Apparently Mazy makes a mean Red Velvet cake so of course that’s what we made for her with vanilla swiss meringue buttercream and vanilla fondant.
