I started with a white piece of fondant rolled out fairly thick for stability. I set a bowl on top to cut around to make a perfect circle. Then, using a printed picture of the Seminole head, I cut out the "hair" and used it as a template. I set it on black fondant and cut around it with a pairing knife. I did the same thing for the eye and mouth pieces that are black.
The next thing I did was mix my colors. I used piping gel mixed with green and purple to make the black and piped the outline of his face. I used the gel mixed with red, orange and purple to make the garnet and piped the stripes on his face and wrote "Florida State". I did the same making gold with yellow and just a dab of orange.
I let the whole thing sit overnight on a piece of cardboard. The next day after making and icing the cake, I was able to lift the fondant Seminole face and place it directly on top of the cake. Then I just ran a shell border using tip #18 around the outside to blend it in with the rest of the cake and tip #5 to pipe "Happy Birthday" and the boys names. My little Seminole fans loved it!!
