Shake Your Body Like A Belly Dancer!

Hi everyone!  Just getting back into the groove of caking and baking after a week long vacation in Mexico. I also went home with their famous Mexican vanilla so I can't wait to try it out! 
Since being back I made three cakes and barely had enough sleep (how fun!).  In all seriousness though,  I definitely enjoyed all three cake projects since the design element of each one is so different from the other.  I'm sharing one of them below.  The theme for this cake is Belly Dancing.  When I think of belly dancing what comes to mind are vibrant colors and flowy movement.  For this cake, I decided to incorporate some details of the Bedleh (Pronounced "BED luh".) which is a traditional outfit belly dancers often use to perform. The detail on this cake is fabric like and flowy to mimic that part of the costume and yes,  I used lots and lots of gold details.
