Bro-in-law Cake

My future bro-in-laws birthday rolled round in January and as I had done a cake for his sisters birthday, it was only fair that I did him one.
I did a plain sponge cake decorate with fondant icing. He loves pandas so I made 2 pandas for the top. I also added a model made to look like him leaning on pillows with an xbox at his feet. As he is a huge Harry Potter fan his cake wouldn't be complete without a small gesture towards HP so I created a wizards hat and placed this at his feet.
The Happy Birthday and border were cut out using the Cricut Cake Mini.
The cake was greatly appreciated and seemed to go down well although, to me, it wasn't the best as it was very narrow. It didn't seem to raise much. I think I need to get a new pot of baking powder as I've had it for quite a while and the potency (apparently) can deteriorate.
