I'm always happy to see a cake carry a theme through inside and out. It's sad when the outside of a cake is spectacular and the inside is boring.
Light fluffy mousse cake covered in white chocolate, get in my mouth! It's like the fanciest grown-up Ding Dong ever! I'd love to open that foil hockey puck and find this inside instead of that nasty waxy "chocolate" and scary chemical cream filling. We need Hostess snacks for adults!

I'm not sure if it's on purpose but the number 80 on this cake looks like it's made out of some magical fried potato concoction and it's singing to me! It must be my slow carb diet brain talking but somebody pass me the numbers and leave me be!
When I was a kid I was obsessed with those fancy chocolates that look like seashells. They are used to spectacular effect here. At first I thought those were real shells! I'm filing this one away for ideas later in the year for sure.
Wouldn't this springtimey cake make a lovely hat for a garden party? I went to a wedding performance art thing once where there was a girl dressed as a wedding cake with real cake on her hat. She wandered through the party and bent down so people could take bites. I'm pretty sure anyone with an edible hat would be the life of the party.
