A cake

Recently I was asked to make a cake for someone at Mike's work. I've really always liked the person, so I thought, hey why not spend a lot of time and go all out. I can't say they're as good as Tracy's cakes but not bad for first time using marzipan I thought it was fine.

Yes. It's people putting pretzel logs in a stream. That's what they're research was all about.
And a close up. This was prior to eyes and mouths being added.

Hopefully with practice, it'll get better! (The cake also got trees added out of ice cream cones, and the green blobs got frosting to look like bushes)

Loved your cake! I have NO TALENT, LOL...I hope to visit again when I get back from Vacation!
