Ninja Birthday Cake

True to my word, I have not baked anything this week.  So, what better way to pass the time than to post old birthday cakes? 

Here is the cake I made for the boy last year.  He told me what he wanted and we designed it together.  He was really happy with it.  And I only got one picture.  With my phone.  Seems to be a trend with me. 

The ninjas on the second tier were cut out using the infamous Ninjabread Men cutters.  The pagodas were hand-cut with an X-Acto knife.  The throwing stars are modified snowflakes on toothpicks, made of fondant with tylose powder added, dried and stuck into the cake.

I thought that the stars would taste bad, but I must have been mistaken.  They ate them all.

That's it for this cake.
