At Polkadots we love our pizza. So we asked ourselves, "What is better than pizza?"
A pizza made out of cake! Yes, ladies and gentlemen, we went there. This cheesy creation is actually our chocolate cake covered in fondant which was then airbrushed  to give it that fresh out of the brick oven look. For sauce we used strawberry jam and then covered it in grated white chocolate. Our toppings included fondant tomatoes, mushrooms, and basil. We melted the chocolate with a torch for that ooey gooey cheesiness. Delicious!
