This is my favorite cake ever! I had so much fun making all the different elements of this cake for Ryan. I made a 2 layer 3 tier vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream and covered them with fondant.
Starting at the top, I made a marblized black and white sheet of fondant and cut out the letters of his name.
Then I layed a football on top. Hanging off the side was his football jersey. He is an ESPN fan, so I made the ESPN logo out of fondant and added that to the front. One of his favorite shows on TV is Lost, so I made a little Lost scene with palm trees and sand. I made a red heart with his and his girlfriends initials inside. I made a cool black cross outlined with red. Standing in the front is my pirate cat made out of fondant. Ryan was in advanced photography classes in high school, so i made a camera out of fondant also. Attached to the cake next to that is a diploma. I also added a basketball,
