Coolest Homemade Retirement Cake

This cake was made for my father in law who loves wine. I used four boxes of cake mix and three cans of frosting with confectioner’s sugar added to thicken it up.

The cake is covered in homemade marshmallow fondant. The man who was made to resemble my father in law, was made of Wilton fondant.

This cake took a total of 3 full days to make all the fondant, the man, the grapes and the actual assembly. It was so worth it because he was truly touched at how much work went into it.

  3. The cake is absolutely wonderful and what a way to show your love for your father-in-law I expect he was dumbstruck. Well done.
