So, a few weeks ago I had the ultimate privilege of making a cake for one of my very favorite high school teachers, who just retired. I will never, EVER forget how he took his own personal time after school to help me when I was struggling with Algebra - ended up becoming one of my favorite subjects in school! My class as a whole was probably quite the "challenge" for my math teacher - but he was there every day with a smile (and usually a corny joke or two!) I hope he enjoys his new "job" - enjoying time with his family and grandkids! :) I found complete inspiration for this cake design from the fabulous "Icing on the Cake"! The cake was vanilla with vanilla swiss meringue and chocolate with vanilla swiss meringue, covered in fondant with all fondant/gum paste details.
