The 7-year-old birthday girl is a bit more sophisticated in her tastes than many of her peers. She is currently enthralled with all things Ancient Egyptian and requested either a pyramid or sarcophagus for her birthday cake. I thought this golden pyramid would be a bit more dramatic than a sarcophagus, not to mention a new challenge for the cake baker. The palm trees are molded from gum paste. The desert sand is a mixture of graham cracker crumbs, yellow sanding sugar and chocolate sprinkles.
