Nostalgic Gumball Machine Cake


This was a first for me! What fun though! This was requested by one of my most loyal, repeat customers. Thanks Heather! She always pushes me to do new, fun stuff! The "glass" was a new, plastic, fish bowl from a local pet store (washed very well of course). The base of the machine was all cake made from 2-8" and 2-6" cakes in strawberry flavor. It was a scary drive to delivery as I had to hold the cake still while my husband drove 30 minutes away. It made it fine and the client was happy. There were 1 dozen cupcakes also, adorned with a mini white gumball on top. The wrappers were purchased from Etsy.
