This cake was inspired by a picture sent to me by my client. I knew when I saw the picture that I could make the cake even better. The top is made to look like the shield Percy carried in the movie, "The Lightning Thief", and is completely edible, made from cake, fondant, and royal icing, airbrushed with gold edible paint. The cake is a 10 inch chocolate cake with buttercream icing. The elements on the board are also made from fondant. The client was thrilled with the cake, and I was very happy with how it turned out.
