I was asked to do a traffic light cake for a 3 yo boy for today. Since I had done the lighted cake for Skylanders I was asked if I could light this one up as well. I talked with the friend who did the lights for the Skylanders cake and he made up the lighting rig for me.
It was really a rather simple cake to make, although I hate working with black fondant as it stains.My only problem was hiding the cables. The top was a bit rough. I should have cut them into the cake better but they fact that it lit up, oh and flashed, made up for that. Next time I know what to do. I loved doing this cake. In fact I love decorating cakes for children.
