Snowboarding birthday

Hi again. We just had a cake picked up for this evening's celebration. Actually Rebecca's birthday isn't until February 5th but since she lives in Vancouver and is visiting this week her mom wanted to celebrate her birthday a little early.  So she asked us to make her cake.  Though not a large cake it was a little challenging. Rebecca loves to snowboard and what better to commemorate her day with something she loves, but mom wanted to incorporate roses in her cake, hm mm, snowboarding.....roses......somehow I didn't think the 2 actually went together.  So Mel & I had to get a little creative.  We thought about Vancouver, you can snowboard up in the mountains and then come down to greenery including flowers, hm mm. So we decided to split the cake, top part as the mountains for snowboarding with the snow trickling down to the green hills with...yes....roses. I was told that Rebecca's favourite colour is yellow so we made sure her snowboard was yellow and so are her roses.  Have a look and see what you think.......we think it turned out quite cute.....now let's hope they do too.

The cake is an 8"  3 layer vanilla cake with lemon filling. Everything except the snowboards (which are made from gum paste) are made with fondant. 

We hope you enjoy your visit with family & friends.
