It was my sis-in-law's 40th birthday last weekend. My mother-in-law wanted to make our family dinner extra special. Wanting to help, I would've done almost anything. Well, she asked me to make the cake. I was on Spring Break and was thrilled to have the opportunity- I used it as a chance to work with fondant again. I'm not skilled at it, so making a fondant cake takes me a loooong time. Here's what I came up with- I tried to match it with the party goods my mother-in-law used (let's just say, the plate is "strategically-placed." Don't look too closely, lol).
