This was my first go around with fondant and being creative and artistic and well it's not too shabby! I am proud of my self for completing his cake however I still need more work on my fondant skills.

Then I whipped up a batch of rice krispys so that I could mold a skull for the door way and a large sword because really He-man is nothing without his sword.
