Russian Doll Inspired Cake

My project this week was to make a Russian doll inspired cake.  I decided to go the non-traditional route and created a design inspired by the evil queen of Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs.  I mimicked the traditional shape of a Russian doll but  the whole design and elements are based on the evil queen herself.  The cake was carved using 3 round 6 inch cakes, 2 round 5 1/2 inch cakes,  and 2 round 4 inch cake and doweled at the center and covered with black fondant.  The base is made out of rice krispy treats making every element of this cake edible.  This is such a fun cake to make!  Next time I will attempt to make a Batman Russian doll cake.
