This cake was made for my cousin who is turning 40! His wife wanted a fishing cake, she left the design up to me. I found out that he has a special lake he goes fishing on. So, I made this fisherman out of fondant sitting on the bank of the lake. He is sitting on a fondant ice chest w/tootsie roll beer bottles around him, holding onto a fishing pole(wood dowel) w/real fishing line(hard to see in picture). The cake is a basic white mix w/almond extract and the frosting is buttercream.
