String Cheese Incident, 20th New Years Eve - 12/31/13 - Happy New Year! This cake was made to celebrate 20 years of amazing New Years Eve performances here in Colorado by the band, The String Cheese Incident. SCI is one of my favorite bands to listen to while I "cake", and this cake was a big, sweet Thank You. The Snow Hill, "20" and sleigh were full of Vanilla Pound cake and Swiss Buttercream with a coffee soaking syrup. The Dragonfly is gumpaste on a wire framework which was also covered with gumpaste wherever it touched cake. She has cast-gelatin wings, which were hand-painted copper. The instruments and rails are solid gumpaste which were also hand-painted (except for one small guitar-neck
repair). It was such an honor to spend time with these wonderful gents and to cut some cake with them!
