Here is a skier cake made with one 6" chocolate layer of cake and buttercream frosting.
The skier is sculpted from gumpaste.
He is lying in the snow with his ski tips pointing different directions. One pole is in the snow and one is lying next to him. That's sort of the way I feel after a day of skiing.
You can sculpt a face or paint one with food coloring.
The skis are sculpted from green gumpaste.
The cake boarder is black frosting piped with a black candy pearl center.
Ski season kicks off soon. Good thing there is a blizzard outside right now!
This cake was made in honor of a friend who passed away earlier this year. He was a top dog in the ski instructing industry, and I can't help but think he'd look down and get a little chuckle from this cake. We love you and we miss you!
