Capistrano Spring Break.

This cake was created for the Threadcakes Competition. Open to both professional and novice bakers, the rules are to chose a Threadless T-shirt design and then create a cake based on that design. I was too intimadated to enter last year. This year, I did enter and ended up being a finalist. Below is the cake, my inital design and the original artwork by Andy Gonsalves.
