Happy 55th Birthday, Dad!

Hugs & Kisses!

Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Bean Buttercream & Fresh Strawberries, covered in vanilla fondant with black fondant accents.  The sign post was molded from rice krispy treats, then covered in fondant and painted with silver pearl dust & vodka.  The cake board was "painted" with tinted royal icing and decorated with fondant flowers.  Good thing my dad is in touch with his feminine side, the flowers do make this one a little more "girly" than I had thought they would.  Such a silly & fun cake to make!!!  Tasted great, too!!!
