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.

  33. This cake shows a great way to creatively capture something that is incredibly unhealthy (cigars) with something that is... well.. less unhealthy (cake). It's a great idea for adults, but it's a good thing this cake isn't marketed to kids. There are already enough ad campaigns directed toward promoting tobacco products to kids in order to draw in life-long customers from a young age, as tobacco has proven to be extremely habit-forming.

  34. I also learned that the software provider to the games is Microgaming, that
    is a trusted company that designs games for a huge selection of sites.
    One with the greatest samples of such laws is the
    Unlawful Internet Funding Gambling Prohibition Act
    introduced in 2006 by the president with the United States George Bush.
    However it is crucial on the part of players to select the reputed sites
    with proper care and caution to avoid being cheated or robbed of these precious money.

  35. And not just that, your subsequent deposits made henceforth will take
    some free bonus money no matter what. Then, when you begin playing
    the game, it is possible to win money proportionate in your membership or at times,
    much more than that. I also found that the software provider for that
    games is Microgaming, which can be a trusted company that designs games for hundreds of sites.

    operators operate their casinos on boats.
    Many people actually fed their families with money that was made out of placing bet on their own favorite animals.

This cake was made for Demetris, an adorable two year old boy!  I hope he likes it. His mother told me that he likes Mickey Mouse very much!
