Here is a cake that I did a while ago that managed to get lost among all the others.
It was for a friend who recently (when the cake was made) won the Welter Weight Championship in MMA Fighting. He won a pretty nifty belt to show for it. He also wanted to celebrate with a cake. The design idea was to make the belt into a cake.
The cake was baked and carved into the shape of the belt. It was then frosted with Vanilla Buttercream. Over the top was fondant, and then the details of the belt were piped with Vanilla Royal Icing. I like how the royal icing holds up on top of fondant. The borders on the top and bottom were buttercream.
I heard that the cake was a hit at the party. It was a great way to celebrate a great win!
