I have made this cake several times for milestone birthdays. It is meant to be a quilt with each square on the quilt representing a significant moment/ hobby in their life. All images are made from fondant including the 3-dimensional pieces. Ideas include marriage, children, careers, hobbies, places they have lived, grandchildren, awards. Stitching in between squares is done in buttercream. Always a real hit for the recipient. i have even been told some tears are shed. Could be used for a retirement cake too.
