Trenton's Navy cake

Daily Top 3 - Mar 06, 2012

I made this cake for my son that is leaving for Navy bootcamp next week. He is going in as a air rescue swimmer. The bottom cake was chocolate with raspberry filling, iced in white chocolate ganache. The helicopter was vanilla cake iced in buttercream and covered in fondant. I tried to make it look like the guy was jumping from the helicopter to rescue the guy in the water.
The blue is pulled sugar, I loved working with it and want to learn more. Thank you for looking!
