This was for a 13th birthday party. Cake was yellow with chocolate buttercream, covered in vanilla fondant. Handpainted zebra-stripes, numbers were fondant/gumtex with silver dragees. Also used silver dragees to make the belt buckles at the base. Everything is edible (except for the feathers :P)
These went along with the feather cake. The circles are fondant with the A's handwritten with an edible black marker. I'm horrible at handwriting, but it seems if I concentrate really hard, I can write one letter at a time fairly ok.
I think next time I do chocolate buttercream, I'll pipe it a different way. I think being a dog owner, it just looked a little too similar to something else...:P
