Black Belt!

My nephew Nathan just earned his Black Belt in Tae Kwan Do.  He's just 9 years old, and he's been doing TKD since he was 5, so this is a major accomplishment.  Indeed, earning your black belt at any age is a major achievement.  His goal was to have his black belt by the time he was 10, so he has a lot to be proud of.  
Since this is such a big deal for him, I wanted to do something special for the occasion.  What you see here is the result of several hours of work, but it pales in comparrison to how hard he worked.  
The cake is devil's food, with layers of chocolate frosting and the entire cake is covered in white fondant.  The logo on top matches the logo on his uniform and is made of fondant with the details piped in colored royal icing.  The belt is made of fondant that was rolled between a piece of cloth to give it the proper texture.  The cake sits on cardboard covered in fondant.  
Congrats, Nathan!
