Woodworking-themed Retirement Cake
This retirement cake was four layers of sour cream chocolate cake filled with chocolate Italian meringue buttercream. The cake board was covered in fondant that was textured to look like a hardwood floor and "stained" with food coloring. The base of the cake was wrapped with a fondant tape measure that was handpainted with food coloring.
The carpenter was made from modelling chocolate and I tried as best I could to model the figure after the retiree himself. The table was made from fondant as are the tools. The wood pieces are shaved chocolate.
Hope it's a great party and a happy retirement!
