65th Travel Birthday Cake

This cake was for a 65 year old retiree who travels the world…literally.  Ah, to be there someday, right?  This is a 2 layer 12 inch cinnamon cake with cream cheese icing in the center, covered with buttercream icing.  I figured a cake shaped like the world would be appropriate!

The 65, boat and airplane are all made out of chocolate.  The letters are made out of fondant.  The gray chocolate was a tricky color to make with the wafers, and the color chart I found wasn’t accurate.  I ended up having to use 6 light blue, 2 light pink, 2 peanut butter, and 1 red of the chocolate wafers to make the gray color that I wanted.  The amount of chocolate was a lot more than that, but that is how the ratio was broken down.
