Headstone Retirement Cake

Brandon's dad works for Catholic Cemeteries and asked me to make this cake for a colleague that was retiring. It is a half-sheet cake, 12x18 inches, made with yellow and chocolate cake, raspberry and chocolate mousse filled. You can't tell in the picture, but I painted it with lustre dust so it sparkled like granite would. I think this cake must have weighed 50 lbs. It was super heavy! Everything on the cake is sugar, except the stems for the flowers. The letters for the name were hand cut.
