Skydive Cake

I'm so behind in my posts, I made this cake in the middle of July for my Dads birthday. For his birthday this year my brother and I decided to get Dad a tandem skydive complete with a care package including a nappy (just in case) and an after jump drink. As a bit of a clue I made the cake to match, with a free falling fondant figure of my Dad on top.
It was my first time making a person from fondant, I think it turned out really well. I used florist wire to shape the fondant and hold it in place on the cake.
I love how the little face turned out, its so my Dad. Its cracks me up each time I look at it.
Happy Birthday Dad!!

  5. Wow that is so coole, I can not believe it's your first try at a fondant figure. Also love the mix of buttercream and fondant on the cake it looks excellent.

    And is that true about the care package and the nappy, how weird is that.

  6. This is so amazing, and such a wonderful (and hilarious) gift idea! A clue in a cake! Your buttercream looks wonderfully smooth and your figurine so filled with character. Job so well done :)
