An alpine ski race cake for my nephew who is a ski racer. Two 3" cakes - one chocolate, one vanilla - stacked, torted, and carved into a slope. I made ski race wickets with actual banners on them, but I made them well in advance of the cake in order for them to harden and didn't have the correct cake scale at that time. Turns out they were too big, so I had to go with coloured toothpicks instead. Of course, the joke is with the skier balled up in snow at the bottom of the race course.
