Skylanders Portal Of Power Cake

We Made A Skylanders Portal Of Power Cake!  Isn't It Cool?

My son, Ryan, turned 11 years old today.  One of his favorite things to do lately is play Skylanders on the Wii.  The real genius of the Skylanders games is how it blends the fun of toys and video games into one experience.  Ryan can collect the Skylander figures, put them on his portal of power, and then that character is introduced into the game on the TV.  This provides hours of entertainment for my boys.  The biggest bonus for me is that I can get my boys to do anything (Hey Ryan, if you do 10 loads of laundry I will buy you a Skylander)!  If you are interested in Skylanders for your kids, you can purchase the game Here...

We decided to surprise Ryan with a portal of power cake.  He was super excited, and couldn't believe how closely the cake resembled the REAL portal of power.  Below is a picture of the REAL portal.

Ryan loved his cake, and couldn't be happier.  

He got his slice, and now he is off playing "Crusher" on the Wii.

Happy Birthday Buddy!

Looks awesome! How did you get the charcoal color for the fondant? (anytime I've done grey, it always turns out purple!)
