City & Muskoka Birthday Cake

I was asked to make a birthday cake with a city and muskoka theme. What better way to represent the 'city' here than the CNtower and the Rogers center. The best part of Muskoka is summer so throw in a lake, a dock,sandals, & some beer and you're set!!

I actually had the biggest problem with getting grey fondant! What could be so hard about getting grey right, white and a bit of black and boom you have grey.....well not always so. To make black food gel the company mixes a whole lot of colors, epecially dark ones like green and purple, if they add more of one my case green the fondant takes on a greenish tinge....add white and you get a greeny grey which was not what I wanted!! So after playing around a bit and yelling a bit I turned to Google! The solution...add PURPLE but just a bit and TADA grey!!

This 6" cake is vanilla and filled with chocolate buttercream filling. As a boarder I did a city skyline...not bad for a last minute cake!!
