Today I made this karate themed cake for my good friend's son who is turning 10. She saw a picture of a cake very similar to this (thanks to the idea, whoever you are on Flicker!) and I switched it to a yellow belt since that is his current level. The gi is made out of homemade marshmallow fondant. I used an embossing tool to get the details on the edges. I don't feel it looks as good as the example, but it was easy and fun to make. For some added interest, I googled how to write "Happy Birthday" in Japanese and piped that on to the top. I hope it's correct :) The cake is butter recipe yellow with chocolate buttercream.
Happy Birthday, Trev!
