Proud As a Pea…cake?
September 9th, 2021

We just love this flashy cake and cupcake combo! It was made by Malizzi Cakes for a big wedding party. Peacocks are famous for their feathers, so what better way to show them off than with a stream of cupcakes? The bakers told us the main cake can serve 75 people. That’s not counting the 125 cupcakes, each with 4 pieces of frosting to make the feather “eye.” All that baking and decorating took about 8 hours. But it was worth it, and we bet the cake was eaten in way less time!
