This cake is a single layer 9x13 cake, which I carved small indents out of the side. In order to make it a bit easier to lay down the fondant, I made two individual pieces...one for the top half of the cake and the other for the bottom half. I figured the belt was going to cover the seam anyway, so I might as well make it easier.
The belt is three pieces....one strip going across, a strip for the ties and another for the knot. For the edges of the gi, I cut three strips and made small indented lines with a knife. I now have a rolling tool that makes these stripes...much easier!
I was a little nervous about making the Yin Yang symbol, but it was much easier than I thought it would be. I just used a cookie cutter to make a circle of each color and then I cut away what wasn't needed. Then I just made a small indent to insert the opposite color in each half. To make the bottom of the cake neater, I rolled out a black rope and just fit it around the cake.
Of course, the cake itself was chocolate with chocolate frosting....what else!?
