This cake was a gift for a SGT that was ETSing out of the Army. He was going back home to Montana so I thought that I would give him a little taste of what retirement might be like….fishing and a cooler full of cold ones! The fish, signs, cooler, and bottles are all made from gumpaste. The grass, cattails, and rocks are all made of fondant. The cake was a classic butter cake with homemade strawberry lemon marmalade filling and swiss meringue buttercream frosting. Of course it was all covered in fondant.
