"Firefighter Cake" - 11/11

This cake is not actually a cake at all, it's a brownie!  I made two 9"x12" pans of brownies, placed them side by side and carved out the shape of the maltese cross.  I then spread a thin layer of vanilla buttercream for a smooth even surface and then laid the fondant (pre-cut with the same maltese cross pattern) on top of the brownie.  I had made the flames a few days ahead of time so some could dry curved and have a 3D effect, using yellow fondant with orange and red food color markers for the outline.  I think the flames really made the design:)
