Nurse Saves the Day!!

This cake was for Clara, she was turning 4 & already knew what she wanted to be when she grows up ;)  She wanted a hospital cake, her only request was - Hospital HAD to be purple!!  The rest I came up with.  I think that sometimes doctors feel that nurses don't know how to do their work.  This nurse showed him :D  This was my first time working with marcipan, all my cakes are fondant.  So it was a bit hard.  Cake is 3 layers: chocolate, vanilla, chocolate; chocolate frosting covered with marcipan.

Fastelavn a popular holiday in Denmark & most children get dressed up similar to the Americans during Halloween. Gather for the popular game of "Slaa Katten af Toenden" ("hit the cat out of the barrel"). Holiday comes 7 weeks before Easter Sunday & has been described as a Nordic Halloween. A time for fun & family games. Similar to a piñata, except the candy is in a large barrel decorated with the image of a cat.
