I feel like I need to have a margarita with this cake! I love all of the fun touches and the pops of color! After the cake was covered with orange fondant, I made the piñata donkey by rolling small balls of fondant and flattening them. I placed the flat yellow pieces next to each other to create the first layer of legs. I repeated with green. The red was one larger flattened piece of fondant that was placed on the legs and repeated this with the blue and purple. The head was created with the same process. For the ears I did the same thing, but stuck a toothpick in each one to help hold everything in place. I used my X-Acto knife to create the piñata look. The eyes were just two small black balls. The cactus was created by rolling green fondant like a rope and used three toothpicks, two of them to create the arms I used the end of a toothpick to make the texture. The hats were a round piece of fondant with a cone to make the top and wrapped it in red to create the band. The red chilies were rolled out fondant, with one side rolled to a point and topped it with a small piece of green fondant to make the stem. I used a large star cutter and cut off the triangles to make details along the bottom of the cake. The rest of the cake I rolled little balls and ropes for the letters and trim. I really feel like I need to make tis cake again on Cinco de Mayo and have a fiesta!
