For the Hunter


Okay...we're not into hunting...but when I was asked to do a cake for a 40th birthday, and they wanted something to do with hunting or camo,  I was excited to to something I hadn't done yet!!


This is a carrot cake with cream cheese icing and covered in fondant to look like birch tree bark.  I made the leaves with a fondant/gumpaste mix.  I made a mold from a real bullet and then made these bullets out of chocolate and painted them with edible luster dust.  The antlers were formed with wire and then dipped in white chocolate.  I hate to write on cakes because my writing is so terrible, but I think it worked for this cake!  I just used a brown luster dust to do this!  This cake was very fun to do!!
