The Parthenon

The closest I'll ever get to seeing the Parthenon (I hope not!). A debutante's cake, this is. What a chic way to celebrate one's 18th birthday-- Grecian style. And here I thought it is reserved for wedding themes!
The bottom is 2 layers of carrot cake sandwiched with buttercream, then covered with fondant. The color of the cake is actually dirty white (hard to catch on camera), just like the real Parthenon, charmingly aged with time.
