Martin turned 18 today, but he didn't want a party, didn't want a cake, didn't want presents. (OK, maybe he wanted presents). Guess he's just too old for that stuff these days. So mom planned a party to celebrate the 18th anniversary of her labor day labor.
Martin got into the spirit of things and would probably say it was a great day after all.
He and his buddies (fondant replicas of his friends are holding the "this is not your birthday cake" sign) and he like to play games - usually Poker, XBox 360, among others. One favorite is "Pokemon" Monopoly. So a Pokemon Monopoly Not Your Birthday cake it was. All figures are made of fondant, and this project really made me wish I'd invested in a food printer so I could have made it really realistic. Maybe for the next time Martin doesn't have a birthday!
Oh, in case you were wondering, I made a "Death By Chocolate" cake for Martin's Mom's cake!
