laying out the fondant... can you see the shape?

Start by shaping the details, and an hour later you have....

Wow you are amazing! That is one of the most incredible cakes I have ever seen. What a neat gift to give your son for his birthday. I would love to see a picture of his reaction to seeing the cake for the first time. I'm sure his is going to absolutely love it. Have a great birthday party!

Holy flip, girl!! If you weren't already wildly busy, I'd say that you should start a side business of making cute/amazing cakes!
(Or, heck, at least make and display one at your ward's Talent Show. ^_^)

... And knowing your mad cooking skillz, it's gonna taste even BETTER than it looks! Jealous!!
