My daughter wanted a cake themed off of one of her favorite programs: Planet Earth, the Discovery Channel series. It was fun to make, lots of trouble though, from dried out fondant and edible markers purchased online to it leaning even though I put a ton of dowels in to support it. Grr. The gumpaste trees were not the greatest, neither were the likenesses of her dogs. The alien came out pretty cute, he and his spaceship are gumpaste and I used half of a plastic Christmas ornament to make his lid.
