Thanks guys!! I was bummed because we had to move it up I basically had a day to put everything together and we couldn't make Medusa and all the snakes edible. It was a styro head covered in fondant, did the facial details, and then we fused some of our pre-made but not quite dry enough fondant snakes with some rubber store bought ones so they would stand apart from her head. He absolutely loved it!! He was even more excited when he found out the head wasn't cake so he could save it. He said he had a spot in his room for it
He didn't cut it while we were there because his nurse was dragging everyone on that floor in the room to see it but they sent me pics when they did cut into it. There wasn't a whole lot of time for details but there was the Parthenon with his name in it on the front, a trident, a lightning bolt, Hermes winged chucks, and the shield (which he ate with a slice of both the top and bottom tiers since they were different flavors). His mom had pics of him pretending to be scared of her. It was really cute.
