As a child, my parents had friends that would watch my siblings and I on different occasions. This cake is for one such friend. We have known the birthday girl since we were knee high to a grasshopper, so when her daughter asked me to make a cake to celebrate her day, I jumped on it. The mother is a very funny lady and she loves to dance, among other activities.
The color scheme was red, white, black, and silver. Music notes were requested by the daughter, and I decided a stick figure dancing would play to the mother's fun side. Even though the cake looks huge, it's only a 6"/8" tiered cake.
