Swisher Sweet Cake!

I made this cake for a friends surprise birthday party. She liked this particular brand of cigars and we made the box for the cake design.

It was a homemade red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting.
The decorations were made with fondant that i colored burgundy. I also have some hand piping in black. You can get the fondant ready made or make it homemade by using; marshmallows, powdered sugar, and a little water.
I made the cigars out of gingerbread cookies. I dipped them in black frosting and gold sprinkles.
I made stencils for the decorations so the cut out process would be easier. I used water to stick them on but you can also use frosting as the glue.

It took about 7 hrs to make everything and about 3 hrs for minor alterations.

I got these wilton products at my local craft and grocery store.
