My friend, Patty, asked me to do another cake. Her husband works as a janitor at Heritage High School, and wanted to show his appreciation for the office staff that have helped him out throughout the year. The school colors are red and black, their mascot is a big lion, and their motto is "Welcome to the Pride".
The cake itself is an 8" yellow round, iced in vanilla butter cream icing. The lion was first a 7" black circle, then the red face overlaid on that, then white accents for the mane. The thank you banner is also fondant with my best paintbrush-calligraphy.
