Globe cake!

My first sphere, this cake definitley presented some challenges. The first attempt was for the whole thing to be cake, but that ofcourse was too much weight, so i opted for plan B. The bottom half is styrofoam. placed atop a piece or sterilazed PVC pipe which is also covered in fondant. I made matching cupcakes to make up for the lack of cake :/ but they ended up really loving it! :) Im a perfectionist so i was determined to get this cake to stand up! lol The moon orbiting the earth is also a small styrofoam ball covered in fondant that i added some crators to. She requested that the happy birthday shout out come from Houston, TX, so i did my very best to pin point it! the globe as a whole is not EXACT...but i got as close as i could for the time I was allotted, this was a very last min request. :)
