Mardi Gras Surprise Cake!

I created this cake for Kim-le.  She celebrated her 35th birthday last week and wanted a Mardi Gras theme.  The twist is that after I got all the information about what she wanted, I told her I could not do it!  Is that cruel or what?!  Now, the reason is because her lovely Mother-in-law wanted to surprise her on her special birthday.  She loved the cake and was very happy!!!
