My fella has been obsessed with wrestling lately (mainly because of his involvement in producing a live wrestling show: https://www.facebook.com/victorycwrestling) so I seized the opportunity to make a wrestling themed birthday cake. I thought about trying to do a wrestler or the ring or something, but I decided to go with a luchador mask, since he and I had flexed our crafty muscles making them, and since I have a thing for Mexican folk art.
But first, the cake:
I made a peanut butter/cream cheese icing (OMG) and on a whim, added a banana layer.
I used the Bob's Red Mill Gluten free chocolate cake mix, which was quite good.
I have an easy fondant recipe that I found online that makes a great, play-doh-ish texture of fondant.
I used food colouring gel from William Sonoma for bright colours.
