What are you most proud of? How the project turned out and the excitement from everyone when the cake was delivered.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just go for it and have a great time.

I love this cake! I assume the lunch bucket and hat are cake, but what is the flame safety lamp made of? I do cakes but only as a hobby and only for family. My husband is in mining and I would love to do something like this for his birthday!

The hard hat is made out of gumpaste. There is a small cake undert the hard hat. The mining lamp is make out of rice krispies. The pick is make out of fondant and the cool is cool candy. So everything I made. I covered a hard hat and left it dry to get the form. Worked out really good. Hope it goes well for you. Was a fun project. I did it for a friend of ours that retired from mining. My husband was also a miner. Please send pictures after you make your would love to see you finished project. Have fun.

I may send a picture, just depends on how bad mine looks :) I am sure it will look nothing like yours! I just hope I can make it look even half as good as yours does! Thanks so much for the info.
