Red, White & Blue Runner 30th Birthday Cake

A sweet mom in Lincroft, NJ ordered this cake for her daughter's 30th birthday party. The occasion was to be celebrated on the 4th of July, so the color scheme was red, white and blue! Her daughter is a marathon runner and her favorite color is red, so I made a red running shoe cake topper!

Concetta wears Asics sneakers, so the logo was on the back of the shoe. The cake was red velvet with chocolate mousse filling and vanilla frosting.  I actually sculpted the shoe out of rice krispy treat, frosted it and then covered it with fondant, rather than making a giant fondant shoe! This way, it could be eaten if they wanted to! :)

Overall, with the red, white and blue colors & shooting stars, this was one perfect cake for a 4th of July birthday celebration!

Happy 30th Birthday to Concetta!
