"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.
