"Defender of the Fatherland Day" Cake

Well, in class we learned that today is "Defender of the Fatherland Day" in Russia.  We are holding a surprise party for all or our fellow male students to celebrate them.  Originally, and maybe still is (not sure) it was a day to celebrate those men in the armed forces in Russia but now (if I am remembering what my teacher told us accurately) it is kind of a catch all type of holiday for celebrating MEN!  Apparently, they get gifts and are treated especially nice on this day (Feb. 23).  So, I of course volunteered to make a cake and this is what I came up with.  The army men and grass are made out of chocolate candy melts.  I love candy melts!  They are so easy to use!  All I did was put wax paper over a picture of the army guys and traced it with the chocolate.  That's it!  Refrigerate them for a minute so that they harden before you put them on a cake.
