This Cemetery Worker Birthday Cake I made for a co-worker’s birthday at the cemetery that I was working at. I used the butter cream icing recipe from the Wilton website. I also used the butter cake recipe from their website.

I made all of the decorations on the cake out of fondant. The only thing non edible was the sucker sticks that I used to keep the parts in place. I used candy markers to write on the cake. The rocks around the border were chocolate and I didn’t make those. I purchased them last minute because they were perfect and I couldn’t see spending the time making them for the price.

The man buried in paperwork was my version of a caricature of the real guy. The shovel says “we dig you” and the monument says “Happy Birthday Dan”. The cake went over well and brought a lot of laughs.
