Fireman Cake

This was a simple cake that I did for yesterday for a guy that graduated from the Fire Academy. I wanted to make it manly so why not do flames? And what better background for flames to really stand out then black? So, this is his cake. The flames I did freehand out of fondant and painted luster dust on the tips and body and everything else is buttercream, except for the ladder, that's fondant as well. The flames on this cake look so cool in person. Tim was proud of my flames so I knew I did a good job!! This was a really fun cake to do. Man cakes are harder for me than feminine cakes because your design style is limited. So I was very pleased with the outcome.

A couple shots of the flames, can you tell I'm proud of myself?

I love to eat and love to hate that I love butter. And wine. And did I mention butter? I'm always learning new things, happy to lend a hand, and love my life.
