50th Birthday Party for an outdoors-man!

Tractors and fishing boats and black jack and beaches.... theses are a few of his favorite things!
The sculpted fishing boat was modeled after his own boat, named "Never Say Never" made of Pina Colada Cake (coconut cake iwth a rum glaze and pineapple buttercream). The gentleman is a salt water fisherman, so we had to include a Blue Marlin caught at the back of the boat. His prized tractor, complete with steering wheel, controls and a comfy seat, was sculpted from amaretto cake with chocolate and raspberry filling. This gentleman also enjoys gambling, so we included a handpainted"21" spread along with some dice (I heard that "7" was a good number in dice). My favorite part of this cake was the little sculpture of him holding a "50." I wanted to make sure that the pose was celebratory and masculine.... hope I pulled it off for this outdoors-man!
