Police Celebration of Life Cake
Celebration of Life Cake done for Jamaica Beach Police Chief Andy McLane, who is battling pancreatic cancer. The cake is German chocolate cake with the traditional coconut pecan frosting. I had to think outside the box since I couldn't cover it with fondant so I covered the frosted cake in sugar "sand" (brown sugar), which made it look like beach sand. All of the police badges and patches, the handcuffs, police radio, and night stick are made of chocolate. The seaweed is made of fondant. The vehicles are all scaled or toy models because time didn't allow for hand sculpting.
