My mom made a cake for a local Boy Scout fundraiser, all the cakes and desserts were being auctioned off to earn money for the scouts. She went with a Hunger Games theme and I thought she did a fantastic job.
Two 8x8 square cakes with homemade chocolate frosting. The flames were made by melting yellow and red hard candies in the oven and breaking them into the desired shape when cool. The mockingjays are yellow cardstock (larger versions of THESE). The white letters were hand cut, using fondant.
Great job, mama. Wish we lived closer so we could work on stuff like this together instead of over the phone. :)
