Since Liam had been studying teaching I created a couple of fondant toppers; one was a mortar board (there's something about those that make the wearer feel very distinguished and important...well that's how I felt wearing mine, anyway!) and the other was an apple. An apple for the teacher, geddit? I crack myself up. Seriously.
The cake was vanilla bean, was iced in vanilla buttercream and covered in fondant.
I must catch up with Liam to see if he's feeling ok...he ate the apple. The entire thing. He was just a little wired afterwards. 100% sugar will do that to you I guess.
