happy birthday penelope: james and the giant peach cake

james and the giant peach was one of my favorite books growing up, along with many other roald dahl classics (hello, the twits, anyone??). i was so excited when miah contacted me about her daughter penelope’s fifth birthday cake…they had just finished reading james and the giant peach together. adorable.

this cake is also a fantastic example of what can be done with paper. the cake itself is quite simple, but the paper birds on gold wire make it sing.
