Finished my no bake cake

I had to handcut and paint the bottle and glasses.  They are the same gumpaste.  The umbrella finally dried.  I just made it too big or I should have made thinner layers.  I had to tape together 3 craft sticks and add one going across the back also to hold this up and it still wants to pull a bit. 

So if you want to do something heavy like this, you either need

1.  a multi layer cake and a long stick for balance
2.  thinner cuts so the weight doesn't want to pull it out of the cake.

All in all though for a small family birthday cake I am happy with the way it came out.  So was the kitty, I don't know if you can tell where I had to try to repair it in the corner by the oyster shell, but kitty got up there while no one was watching and I walked in on her taking a nibble.  Again, good thing this is for family.
