Cool Guy My Tales of Monkey Island Birthday cake :D

So for my 17th birthday my mom asked me what I wanted on my cake, and of course my response was "Steve Purcell's TMI cover art mom!" Then, my mom actually made the cake! So I thought I'd share it with you. All that was used was homemade frosting, no fondant or anything like that.

This is amazing, I want one.
Is your mom a professional cake decorator, or is it just a hobby?

Just a hobby though we keep trying to convince her to do it professionally. Last year she made me a cake of Amazing Fantasy #15(the first comic ever to feature spiderman)

Awesome! How did she do it? All by eye, or was there an image project onto the top, or something?

Both cakes are great but the detail on the Spiderman one is something else -- how can someone do all that text? Amazing.

Those are awesome! My father makes some great cakes, but never with images on top.

And I have to say, 12 cents isn't much for a cake like that

Happy Birthday Stephen! Sooner than you think you'll be leaving Grog Light and drinking a proper mug of Grog with us

PS: Tell your mum a whole forum community loves her now.
