My husband enjoys playing on his X-Box One, so I decided that that would be his cake theme for his 40th birthday. I baked 3 round chocolate cakes, leveled the tops when cooled, then stacked them with a chocolate ganache and berry jam in between the layers.

Next I crumb coated the stack, then piped on swirls of icing in different camouflage colors until they all joined. The top was coated in green colored coconut thread and I made an X-Box One symbol out of fondant icing. Lastly I placed the soldier on top.

My husband was thrilled with the cake and the crowd loved it!
