Junior Marine Corps Ball Cakes

Okay-posted a few threads about these things-at least the fondant and gumpaste Marine in the background! The cakes are 14" vanilla, 10" chocolate-both with double chocolate cookies n cream filling, and an 8" dummy. The dummy is draped with a handpainted fondant flag and luster painted rope, 10" sported a 6" white chocolate and luster dusted Marine Corps insignia, and the 14" included a FBCT of the logo, plus white chocolate medallions dusted with super pearl and silver dusts. My faves so far!!

The FBCT "emblem" looks great and I do love the medallions! I like that you did a non-typical cake for a military occasion.

SpudCake-yes, I made the Marine-I posted about him a time or two with the latest in the disaster threads. His arm fell off the night before the ball and I saved him with super glue. He held up all weekend though and still looks good now-learned a lot from that first free standing fondant figure!!

looks great - the marine looks awesome! How did you get him to stand? and that FBCT looks sooooo perfect! Like it was printed on frosting paper! great job!

The Marine was made with two dowels and a couple of styrofoam balls as the base. I cut small styrofoam ball in half and used it for feet. Then, the entire thing was covered in fondant/gumpaste. He is free standing, but I put a small "cage" around him for the ball so the cadets wouldn't knock him down-they were dancing and shaking the table a lot!

I love all of your special touches. I know they had to be so thrilled to see such an awesome display. Great job!
