We Had A Ball!

A gumball, that is!  This stunning gumball machine cake was as much fun to make as it is to look at!  The base of the machine is cake covered with red fondant – the face plate is fondant too!  The only thing not edible is the glass globe containing real gumballs!

And when the cake was cut, the real surprise was the colorful cake “gumballs” embedded in the layers!
