I made this cake for my friends brother. It was his birthday, and he just got back from a six month deployment. Decorating a cake for a guy is hard, so I did a winter theme, since it was before Christmas. One sign says, "Welcome home" and the other says, "Happy b-day. The cake is marble, with buttercream icing. The ice is royal icing drizzled around the top and bottom, then dusted with pearl luster. Hope you enjoy my cake.
