Okay, please don't be too shocked by the photos. I hate violence, and am not much of a gamer, but when my super, uber-gamer friend asked me to do a special cake for her birthday, I could not say no, even when she told me what she wanted.... You see... my friend plays COD... and not the fish. COD, or Call of Duty, is a gaming franchise which prides itself on a HUGE base of gamers. This game is GOLD in the industry.
Anyway, my friend plays on several teams, and is a quick-scope champion... and a girl. A GAMER GIRL!
What is awesome about 'girlsarookie807' is that she is a huge gamer, knows COD in and out (again, not the fish), and yet, loves the colour pink, and paints her nails better than I could ever hope to. She's awesome!
So, her cake symbolized her perfectly. A crate filled with her two favorite weapons: Throwing Daggers and Grenades. I love the throwing daggers, they were made of Gumpaste, then painted to look like real throwing knives.Can you see? I also added in some bullets to symbolize her quick-scope team.
The cake would not have been right if I did not add a touch of pink. So, the pink bow and rose are the perfect way of symbolizing her femininity.. EXCEPT THAT THE ROSE, CRATE AND ENTIRE CAKE IS COVERED IN BLOOD!!!
Honestly, my favorite part of this cake was the grenade! It's cake, covered in fondant. I had to use MMF to make the ridges, just placing larger squares of MMF on the cake, then covering it in a smooth layer of fondant. Perfect! Gumpaste trigger and pull make it perfect! SUPER FUN!
Okay, onward. My College Caking Course (hehhee.. alliteration), starts Monday! I am super excited for that. I will take photos if I can!
