Ok, so this is kind of an in-joke, but my manager, who's name is Portia, is completely in love with RZA, ex-Wu-Tang member. Like, to the point where we all call her PZA.

A few months back she mentioned in a conversation "If I was ever gonna get married now it would have to be to RZA!" I instantly decided for her upcoming birthday that we would make her a wedding cake for her & RZA's make-believe nuptials.

And so we did..I enlisted the help of my work baking buddy, he made the cakes and helped cover them, I designed & decorated it and make the toppers!

And before I post pics, yes, I am quite aware it looks nothing like RZA..he was tough to capture Roll Eyes



Note the gold Wu-Tang symbols which went all the way around the cake  Cheesy



It looks little, maybe because the toppers were so big- but it was actually pretty huge- it took 3 days for everyone at my work to get through- and we usually polish stuff off within the hour!





The fondant wasn't perfect- but I'm trying to improve that and get a bit of practice in- Ive got a few wedding cakes to make for friends later in the year. Anyone have any tips for smooth fondant? The part I have the most trouble with is it sticking to my rolling pin or falling apart and tearing when I lift it to put over the cake, gah!

Anyway, it was fun to make- and her reaction was priceless- it was a mixture of laughter and "OHMYGOD!" And she got what it was straight away. She texted pictures to her sister & got me to email her my photos, and said it was the most thoughtful present she's ever gotten, so that was lovely to hear, and made it totally worth it!   Grin

Haha me too! I wasnt even trying to do it like that- I stuck it on to see how it would look then pulled it to yank it off and I was like "Oh..well that just looks perfect now" so I left it!

Thanks so much guys  Cheesy

This is kind of the best thing ever.  Your fondant-sculpting skills are A+, the figures are so adorable and detailed.

Thanks Sloth  Grin I assure you they weren't perfect- the backs of them were horrendous, but at least the fronts came out nicely!
