Darwin's Grandpa Glen Johnson turned 80 this pasted weekend. We were able to go back to Burns for the celebration, and I was asked to make him a cake. Darwin's Aunt Sharon came up with the idea of doing a big ole steak, I added the mashed potatoes and corn. It turned out really well! I was really worried about the steak looking cartoony but all in all it turned out pretty good. Everything on the plate is edible. The mashed potatoes, are chocolate cake that I covered in ivory fondant, I didn't want it smooth or pretty as it is suppose to be potatoes, the butter is a yellow starburst complete with Butterscotch "gravy". The corn is cake covered in ivory fondant, then I made three different shades of yellow and hand rolled the kernels. I then colored some sugar black for pepper. The steak is just cake covered in white fondant and then I hand painted it. All it all I think it is one for the portfolio!
