Calvin and Hobbes Demented Snowmen Cake

For those of you who remember Calvin and Hobbes you'll love this cake. Every year I send people a selection of my favorite Calvin cartoons in which he has been evicted from his home for the day and spends it building demented snowmen. Each of the vignettes on this cake was taken from an actual Calvin and Hobbes snowman cartoon. As usual, except for the internal supports that keep some of the pieces vertical or 'together' everything is edible. I made everything except the larger snowballs (they are called dragees and are 'official' cake decorations). The cake was made for Columbia's darling boyfriend, Jake, on the occasion of his 18th birthday. No...my life isn't strictly about cake these days...it's just sweeter because of it!
