Awesome 90th Birthday Cake

I made this cake for my dad’s 90th birthday and he was thrilled. I started with a basic Victoria sponge cake recipe and the covered with white fondant icing.  Everything else was made by mixing fondant icing with various colors ( I tried to copy the color of his chair etc to make it personal to him) the glasses are made with craft wire, and to make the TV look real I printed a scenic picture off and cut it to size and stuck it to the TV using some edible glue.

Tip- it is best to make the chair, figure and other items beforehand so that they dry and harden slightly, this makes them easier to handle and less fragile. To strengthen the fondant paste I use Tylo Powder and just mix it in thoroughly.
