First Birthday Cake

First Birthday Cake on Cake Central

This was for my son's first birthday. The box is covered in fondant. I used Satin Ice's Dark Chocolate for the brown. That stuff was amazing to work with! The lid, bow and tissue paper are all gumpaste. The bow is made up of over 60 individual loops (each with six tiny blue gumpaste polka dots). Next time I'm using a store bought bow! LOL. Tons of work. The bear's body is cake. I carved a head out of cake but it was so heavy. I had to make this cake 2 days before it'll be served and I worried about the weight so I went with RKT instead. It's supposed to look like he's blowing out a candle. Not sure I nailed that part though. The board is covered in fondant as well.
