This was such a fun cake to make. A friend of a friend threw her daughter a very awesome 16th birthday party, and the theme was the original Willy Wonka movie. It was a surprise, so when I delivered the cake we hid it at Grandma's house, and I didn't get to see the birthday girl's reaction. But her mom loved it, which was great. The Oompah Loompah was made out of sculpey, and the letters and 16 on top of the hat were made out of gumpaste, as well as the little flag and rail and top thingee on the boat.
Happy Birthday Laurel !!
