Whew!!! So glad this is done and I'm thrilled with how it turned out. My best friend asked me to make a cake for her father-in-law's Birthday. He's a hunter so we worked out an outdoors theme. I really did things differently with this one but it was a great learning experience. I have to thank my husband for helping me carve the cake, make the rifle, and sculpt the big mouth bass. Other than the grass, all the decorations are fondant/gum paste. The fishing pole and the cat tails are toothpicks.
