Mom's Birthday Cake

This is the cake I made for my mom's birthday. It's a 6" chocolate cake with chocolate ganache filling and covered in marshmallow fondant.

The reindeer was scupted from modeling chocolate. This was my first time making and playing with modeling chocolate. It was a lot of fun to work with though it did become VERY frustrating at times.

It took me a while to get the right shape of the reindeer. My first attempted looked more like a dinosaur than a deer lol.

Once the reindeer was shaped and dried I painted it with edible luster dust. The reindeer is completely edible but it does have some supports in the body.
Snowflakes are made from royal icing. The "snow" is buttercream with edible sparkles.
