As promised, here are pictures of the cake I made for my 28th birthday. I guess there is some rule out there floating around which states "a person can not make their own cake". Well I have never been one to concern myself much with rules, besides I wanted to make it!
I did a chocolate cake with butter cream frosting, and my very first try at fondant.
I have to say that I love fondant! It's like playing with play doh... Only fondant tastes better.
This is my version of a "hobby cake". Complete with mountain bike, racing bib and finish line, stethoscope, band aid, lacrosse stick, fish, and fishing pond. The fishing pole has real fishing line on it :)
I had a ton of fun making it and I can't wait for a reason to make the next one.
