Chef’s Coat Cake

My daughter Nadia saw the Maple Leaf Cake that I had just finished and asked me if I would
make a cake for her boyfriends father who was turning 55. 
Soooooo… a day after my 8 hour stint with that cake, I had another project.  I didn’t mind, they’re wonderful people, and Nadia was a great help all day.  Frank is a terrific chef and we thought this would be fitting for his birthday.  
Pressed for time yet again I found myself using boxed cakes. ( I’m not going through all that, you guys know what to do.)
I have to admit, we were really on the clock for this one, so I didn’t have a lot of time for tons of pictures.
So lets start on a cleaver.  We mixed up some grey fondant and shaped it.

Some black fondant for the handles.

When you brush the fondant with a small amount of shortening it gives off a shine.

Next, onto our cake.  Cover a 2 layered cake, (that has already been crumb coated) with white fondant.

A few more accessories.  We needed those buttons to SHINE!

Of course we couldn’t give Frank a cake without a little Frank to go along with it.
This truly was the fun part.

We put Frank’s hair through the garlic press.

We used white confetti candy and blue edible ink for his eyes.
He really started taking shape.

I have NO idea what kind of shoes Chefs wear, but I like little clean white ones.
