I made this reading and lounging man sofa cake for a friend. When my friend asked for a cake for her husband who loves to read and relax, this is what I came up with.

  • The sofa was made with a rich chocolate cake covered with melted chocolate wafers.
  • The man (aka my friend’s husband)  was handmade from homemade marshmallow fondant.
  • I also made and added a book, throw blankets and pillows to the cake to complete the look. In fact, I even propped the man’s feet up on one of the pillows to make him more comfortable.

The end result was better than I hoped for. People could not believe that the entire cake was edible and the reaction was one that most artists crave for. At the end of the day the smiles and shining eyes made up for all the efforts and hard work I put into making the cake.
