Facta Non Verba
This cake with "Facta Non Verba" writing, which in Latin means "Deeds, Not Words" was designed for a celebration/goodbye party for our client's husband who is getting ready to leave to Afghanistan for duty with the Marine Corps. She wanted him to have a special cake with this skull on it and the Marine Corps emblem, which Rick handpainted. We chose black fondant for the cake to make the design really POP on the cake. Making this cake was bittersweet due to the circumstances surrounding his departure, but we wanted to give him a cake he would never forget. After the party, our client sent us a thank you:
Sasha and Rick,
Thanks for an outstanding job on the cake. It was everything and more. Everyone at the party enjoyed it very much, it was delicious!
