Happiness for an Elderly Man
I made this cake for a neighbor man that was turning 85. I had just learned how to use fondant and it was so much fun. I used one box cake mix. I used one heart pan for the body part and two pyrex bowls that were 6 oz size and baked part of the cake in two of them.
I then frosted the heart cake and pyrex cakes with buttercream icing. Trim the pyrex cakes to be flat on the bottom that goes down on the heart cake.
I placed them on the heart pan and folded the tan fondant over all of the cake. I made the nipple out of candy kisses that had the tips trimmed off. Then after all was covered with the fondant, I made the pasties out of fondant and used gold luster dust on them. I formed it and then I put on some fondant and I bought a couple little paper tassels for the covers. Next, press in a little belly button.
....I also made my cousin that is in a rest home one and it was his birthday, 82, I made him one also, only with a lei of purple and white flowers. There are many ideas with just this one cake. You can cover with a bikini top or whatever your heart desires. It is fun.
