The cake was yellow cake with chocolate buttercream filling and frosting. The fondant was marbelized with edible gold luster dust to look like an old map - similar to the maps shown in Indiana Jones movies when he's flying to different locations and the red line across the map shows his travel path! :) Love those movies :)
Each star has a location of where Nancy and Bud and their family lived throughout their marriage - there's a few stars that have two locations (i.e. Vietnam and Florida) when the couple was living apart due to deployments...truly, the hardships that families in the armed forces endure are so difficult and I give them all a huge thank you for what they all do in the name of the protection of our country!
Happy Anniversary to Nancy and Bud!!
