Spy VS Spy

This cake was awesome to make. I lost a lot of sleep. There was many setbacks. BUT I LOVE IT.
I designed this sweet treat for the Edmonton Public Library Books2Eat gala a few months ago. If you haven't heard about it, it is a really cool fundraiser to help out our local libraries. And books are rad, so count me in! Bakers around the area donate themed cakes, local businesses donate great stuff, there is a silent auction and dinner... so fun!
This year's theme was Spies. Of course I knew everyone would do Bond, and Bourne, and where is the fun in those?! ha ha, I like my cakes t have a sense of humour!

 the panels on all the sides were hand painted on fondant, based on old cartoons I found online.

 the Spies themselves were molded out of modelling chocolate. both holding a special delicious and explosive treat for the other, lol!

 A fella from MAD Magazine even commented on the cake, which really made my day! After growing up reading my older brothers' comics, it was surreal for them to even acknowledge my existence !
