Wizard of Oz Cake

I made a Wizard of Oz cake for my friend's daughter's 3rd birthday. The sides of the cake are a blue and white gingham for Dorothy's dress, while the top of the cake has the ruby red slippers on the yellow brick road rolling over a hill to get to the Emerald City. The legs of one of the witches sticks out from the beginning of the cake. The cake itself is a plain cake with buttercream frosting, fondant, and gumpaste slippers, "witch's legs", and Emerald City.

I love your wizard of oz cake, can you tell me how you made the emerald city?

Thank you, AJ

Hi Amrita-

The emerald city is made of gumpaste. I modeled the gumpaste over lollipop sticks and then painted them green with food coloring after the gumpaste had dried. After the food coloring dried, I dusted the emerald city with gold luster dust.

Hope that helps!
