Grateful Dead

Another Hamilton Family cake! My BFF, Shannon, had a significant birthday in December. Her wonderful husband arranged a surprise birthday party with family and friends. He said he simply wanted a Grateful Dead cake, and a specific motto written on it. it was fun to make, but a real challenge! Those bears were hard!

Each bear was cut out of fondant. It was really difficult to cut out the little fuzzy pokey bits of the bear fur. So, I decided to outline it with black gel icing. With a toothpick. It was not easy!

The logo "Let life lead by it's own design" is a testament to the happy go lucky nature of the birthday girl. Love ya, Shannon!
