Operation Game Cake

I usually make a cake for the lovely doctors & nurses at my Mom's doctor's office. They always take such good care of her & deserve a treat. This year I decided to make an Operation Game cake & as always candy for the nurses. The cake is an 11x15 marble cake crumb coated in buttercream & covered in fondant. The patient is also fondant w/ modeling chocolate hair & eyebrows & I cut out the holes down to the red & filled each hole w/ game pieces made from white modeling chocolate. The words were written w/ an edible marker & the tweezer is made from gumpaste.

This was the second cake I made in a 3 day period & as always I couldn't have done it w/o my trusty Exec. Sous Chef who is the World's Best Fondant Worker!!!

My Nephew's Graduation Scorpion Cake

My nephew just graduated from military school. According to the school's website, his platoon's colors are maroon & yellow/gold, the mascot is a scorpion & his cap & gown were blue. Armed w/ all of that information & photos downloaded from the site I was ready to make a cake. The cake is a 10" marble cake crumb coated in buttercream & covered in fondant. The morterboard is gumpaste & all of the scorpions are modeling chocolate. I thought my scorpions were ugly, but my Executive Sous Chef informed me that all scorpions ARE ugly, so there! LOL
