Mountain Climber Cake!
I had the pleasure of making this super fun cake for my close girlfriend, as she had planned a 40th birthday for her husband. Since he's into rock and mountain climbing, I was sooo excited to make this cake! It was so much fun. I rolled out a combination of tinted fondant and gum paste, let it dry overnight and then literally broke it into peices, that i then used royal icing to "glue" on to the base layer. The cake itself was chocolate, with ( i think) strawberry and chocolate filling, plus a base layer of gray tinted fondant that served to hold the multiple cake pieces together. The rocks are edible as well! I cracked up making the little climber guy, and it's obviously not to scale but no one cared. Great party, super fun day!
