Mom says to me, "Jaxon HATES fondant...oh, but you ONLY do fondant cakes, right?" hahahaha!! If it can be done in fondant in can be done in buttercream, my lovely! Treasure chest, skull and lock are all buttercream (stiffen b/c with PS and you can do a lot with it). The only fondant on this is the Happy Birthday on the cake board. Gems are candy melts and candies dusted with gold and petal dusts. Lettering on cake is candy melts. TFL! Chest is 9x12 quarter sheet cut in thirds and stacked. Airbrushed finish.
