It Is Party Time With These Lovely Carnival Cakes!

Angela Penta cake

This Fabulous Carnival costume cake was made by Angela Penta from Angela Penta Cakes.

This is the last day of my four part series featuring cakes from the Carnival Cakers Collaboration which is an annual virtual international event that showcases and celebrates different carnivals around the world. The administrator is Heba Elalfy, the owner of Sweet Dreams by Heba

Nigeria’s ‘Calabar Carnival and Festival’ is featured this year. It is known as Africa’s biggest street party. This carnival lasts through the entire month of December each year. Calabar aims to include more aspects of local Nigerian heritage and culture, while at the same time strengthening the capacity of locals to participate in an economically beneficial way. 

Various cake, cookie and sugar artists from around the globe contributed a design using fondant, royal icing, modeling paste, isomalt, wafer paper, etc. Hosting a collaboration takes tremendous planning and effort. The Carnival Cakers have once again risen up to the challenge and created amazing cakes, cookies and figurines.
