An explosion of cake

For my Granddad's 75th birthday I was asked to make a special cake for him. The design was left up to me, so I thought something with a bit of height would look really cool. So I came up with this!

Not the best photo but wanted to show a close-up of the explosion opening. Had to carefully carve and pull back the icing, then make wafer thin ribbons. A very fun challenge! Needless to say, Granddad enjoyed it.
