Champagne Sprinkle Cake

I made this New Year’s Eve cake last year for my little new year’s eve party. I cut out parchment paper champagne glasses and applied them to the buttercream that was somewhat cold but still tacky. Also, I rolled the cake with a Fancy Sprinkles New Years’ gold sprinkles. I peeled off the parchment paper and painted it with a mixture of luster dust and vodka to create edible gold and silver paint. Then I did a black candy melts ganache drip (I used a 3:1 ratio for the candy melts and heavy cream. I.E., 3 oz of candy melts and 1 oz of heavy cream). To top the cake off, I piped with my favorite piping tip, Wilton 1M, with some gray buttercream and sprinkled the top with the sprinkles and lots of edible glitter. I purchased the New Years’ decor at Target and affixed the design with a wooden stick to make a cake topper. It was a delicious cake, vanilla cake layers filled with raspberry and vanilla buttercream.
