This "Hunting" theme cake was done for a 5th birthday. It was also requested "Gluten free". Vanilla bean cake with strawberry buttercream/fresh strawberry filling. EVERYTHING on the cake but the animals and the quad runner was edible....the client provided specific plastic molded animals which helped keep the food cost down. I did however, mold the little boy riding the quad out of gumpaste, and covered the quad with fondant to be able to paint it "camo", just like the birthday boy's real quad!
The rocks, trees, camping area and wooden boards are all fondant. The water effect I did by using cornsyrup and white airbrush paint. The sand was a mix of different sugars and graham crumbs. Happy Birthday Noah!!
