Call of Duty Birthday Cake

Posted by Jennifer at 1:05 PM
This cake reminded me of my dad (he was an Army man for nearly 30 years) but it was for a 13th birthday. It was modeled after a video game and a cake that Minda had seen. Everything on the cake is edible and that made me so happy :) The gun and grenades were rice krispies covered in marshmallow fondant and then the helmet and camouflage base were cake.
The bottom tier was After Dinner Mint flavor (minty chocolate cake layered with mint chocolate ganache and mini chocolate chips) while the helmet was Tuxedo Cake (vanilla and chocolate layered with buttercream & chocolate buttercream). I hand painted the camo onto the cake using food coloring and water (like watercolor painting). For the gun and grenades , I shaped it out of rice krispies and then covered in it fondant. Afterward, I used a sculpting tool to create grooves, indents, and patterns into the fondant so that it had shape and looked more realistic.
After the party, I got this email from Minda: "Bday cake was AWESOME!!!!! Thank you so much for all your hard work! My son, Dakota loved it! Not to mention it was so yummy! You are so awesome! We will definetly be using you in the future and recomend you to others! Thanks again! We look forward in working with you in the future!!!" Yay!
