Soldiers on sunset

This is my latest cake for a lovely young guy that has just returned from a tour in Afghanistan. He was away for his 21st but they wanted to do something special on his safe return. I was given a beautiful photo which I have photoshopped to take out the soldiers and used as a background then modelled the soldiers as in the pic. I was really up against the elements this last week and the soldiers have spent 10 days in my oven to keep them safe from humidity. I was so worried I’d forget and turn the oven on! The cake itself is 2 × 7″ cakes, moist choc with dark choc ganache. Lettering is handcut.

Thanks so much for looking. I felt privileged to be asked to make this cake.
