Family Tree Birthday Cake

Made this for my grandfathers 81st birthday. He has Alzheimers so I wanted something to depict our family. Got some ideas from Cake Central, and this was what I came up with. Three layer cake, all done in buttercream. I used paper for the leaves, as I had a difficult time getting the writing small enough on fondant leaves. (Sorry, I cheated. Not as skilled as many of the people on here. Lol) I did use fondant for the heart on the tree, and put my grandfather and grandmothers initials on it although the pics are kinda fuzzy. I made the poster behind the cake with pics I copied off of facebook to help with my theme. The white is supposed to be clouds, although im not sure they really turned out well. The quote on the poster says "You may not remember, but we will never forget"
