Jon Nakamatsu's Birthday Cake

This is a sculpted cake that I made for pianist Jon Nakamatsu's birthday party. The entire cake is edible, including the open lid and its support. The outside of the cake is coated with dark chocolate ganache, and the keys and music made of sugar paste. Note also the shutter shades sitting on the edge of the piano, which were made from royal icing.

The cake in the making, for a sense of scale.

I was quite proud of this detail: the strings of the piano wrote out: "Happy Birthday, Jon!"
