Built to perfection!

How's this for the bodger, I mean builder in you life?

This white iced cake has been surrounded by red bricks cut from orange/brown sugar paste/fondant.
The dents are made with a bone tool before leaving then to dry. When dry they can be assembled around the cake using ivory coloured royal icing as mortar.
You can't see the back view of our builder model but I can assure you he does have the obligatory "builder's bum" and mug of tea!
A few tools have been added to help him in his quest, such as trowel, spirit level and hammer!
If you have a DIY fanatic in your midst, why not give it a try?

The Beatles & West Ham?

Mad about "The Beatles" and support  "West Ham"! If so this cake fits the bill.

"The Beatles" logo was copied from the internet, printed to required size and cut out. The templates were then used on rolled out flower paste to cut all the required components before being left to dry.
The Electric guitar was from a cutter but this could have been done in the same way.
The scarf is blue and burgundy oblongs/rectangles the same height as the cake, cut from sugar paste/fondant. These are then attached close together, making sure there are no gaps and made to meet in the middle, front of the cake. Small cuts are made on the join to give a fringe effect.
