Joseph's Birthday Cake 2011

Clavinova/Keyboard  Cake
 Joseph's birthday is July 4th...  He usually picks some kind of flag cake, or red, white, and blue cake, but this year he picked a clavinova instead.  Joy and I had a great time making this one!  It was a really fun cake and we really like how it turned out! 

Joseph wanted chocolate cake, so Joy made a recipe ("Darn Good Chocolate Cake") from one of her newer cookbooks   It was baked in a 9x13 pan, then cut and shaped to size.  We frosted it with simple butter 
cream frosting.  We put a layer of black fondant over the cake.  The white keys and letters were made with gum paste.  Joy used her CriCut machine to make the letters.  Then we cut the black keys, buttons, etc. from the leftover black fondant.
