For some reason, I kept expecting to see a Pavlova and some sugar plums, but this is not quite so literal.

Those are the best. My mother always used to make recital cakes for me, with ballerina cats or ballet shoes (I distinctly remember her making two ballet-shoe cakes when we had a class party--a pink one for the girls, and a white one for the boys! With the flavours being strawberry and blueberry) She also loved to make chocolate moulds of ballerinas and ballet shoes--she'd paint the colours into the mould with tinted white chocolate, and then pour the rest of the chocolate in.
