Ice cream shaped cake

A few days ago I was asked to create a cake to exactly match a stationary design for a 40th birthday, this is what I created. Although a fairly simple cake to make it still was tricky to try and make the cake look like the sketched ice cream. This particular cake was a double chocolate sponge (not a cake I recommend for carving!) filled with Choc fudge frosting. The cake consisted of 4 x 8' inch square cakes, stacked then carved using a cardboard template I created.

It was quite large in the end, as you can see it sitting on a 14" square cakeboard covered in fondant.
