I made this Plants vs Zombies cake for my son's 10th birthday. It's a chocolate cake with chocolate ganache, & covered with fondant. The figures (except the pea shooter & lily pad, which my 6yr old made out of clay) were made out of gum paste. Fingers & face were fondant. Eyes were rice krispie treats covered with fondant. I've never made a layered cake, used fondant, or gum paste so I think it turned out great!! It was good too!
