30th Birthday Cake

This cake was for a co-worker's surprise 30th birthday party. He's an avid runner and flag football-er, both of which we wanted to incorporate in his cake. Credit for the design goes mostly to his best friend from college who also works with us and planned the whole party. I promise the "hill" aspect of the cake was an unintentional coincidence but given the fact that he was turning 30, it just seemed oh-so-fitting. The cake is vanilla bean pound cake with a cookies 'n sweet cream filling.

The cake is covered in [green] Italian buttercream and the road is made out of crushed Oreos.

The banner, running trophy, and football are all handmade out of gumpaste and fondant.
