This Great Cake Contest entry was submitted by emloy7172 from Cookeville, Tennessee: This was a cake I made a while back for a "young" lady's 30th birthday.
bake and level a 10" square cake and an 8" round. Cut round in half to form half circle for top of tombstone.
join two together on a presentation board and ice smooth with gray icing, old fashioned homemade buttercream of course!
outline with #3 tip gray and fill in with star tip #18. Use grass tip to pipe green grass, and use basket weave tip to write RIP. Finish with cute royal icing daisies for a "morbidly feminine" touch.
