A Santa-themed cake for a little Southern California girl's December birthday. Santa is made of gumpaste and hot glue. Yes, I said hot glue; he broke just before I put him on the cake!! The cake is iced in IMBC and smoothed using Antonia74's fabulous smoothing tips; this is the first time I have EVER gotten IMBC this smooth. How ironic that I had to "roughen up" the top to make waves. The sand is made of cake crumbs and sugar, and all other details are fondant or gumpaste.
