armadillo cake


Have you ever seen the movie Steel Magnolias? Well this cake is like the armadillo cake from Steel Magnolias.
In the movie it's the disgraceful grooms cake the groom orders. They are embarrassed to have at the wedding because it's an armadillo. So they serve it in the carport.


I made this for a bridal shower themed after the movie.
I hear the shower's decor looked "like it's been hosed down with Pepto-Bismol." Because the colors were "blush and bashful" (pink and pink)
I watched the movie as I decorated the armadillo. The movie was a riot!

Best part of this cake is the armadillo is made out of red velvet cake. I sure wish I could have seen this guy when he got cut up.

Jake asked me if he had a name too! Funny that you thought the same thing. I didn't end up naming him, considering his ultimate fate. :)
