Billy's Cake

I got a VERY last minute cake request from a friend of a friend of my husband's, who's familiar with many of the cakes I've done.  He wanted a cake for his friend's birthday giving only four day's notice, asking that it be a smaller round, red velvet and to somehow incorporate his friend's three least favorite things: tomatoes, olives and coconut.  Um, helloooo, random.  But I agreed.  Here's what he got:

That's one mad tomato and his olive army.

8" red velvet, covered & decorated with marshmallow fondant.  'Coconut' is white chocolate shavings.  And Billy is edible image.

What a fun adaption of his 'favorite things.' Yes - the faces are adorable and everything looks so clean and perfect!
