Fondant Cigars Birthday Cake

This was my husband's birthday cake.
This sugar cigar case was made tonight, and it is going to be used as a decoration theme for  my husband's birthday cake. I have to admit that photos do not show all the details on the cigars, but I think they are good enough to show the end result.


I used icing fondant and gum paste which I made from scratch (you can find this recipe and instructions in a previous post). I also used fondant colour paste, and edible pens.  

Although my husband does not smoke any more, this cake was a pleasant surprise for him!
His birthday is on the 21/03/11.
