Havana Nights

 
 

The hero of this three tier chocolate cake was a singer in Havana nightclubs in the 50s, when the city rivaled Hollywood for glamor.  His daughter wanted to remind him of his halcyon days, so I designed this cake with a nod to the famous Tropicana Club, featuring the iconic concrete arch. I changed the Tropicana sign to his name,  Flavio, and air-brushed the cake to give it a night-time feel.
