Prepare and cover 1-layer cake with 1 pk. of rolled fondant. Smooth and shape fondant using Easy-Glide Smoothers.
Divide 1 pk. of rolled fondant into 3rds. Reserve 2/3 white; divide remaining 1/3 in half and tint on half red, one half blue.
Cut pocket and flap out of white fondant. Stack flap on pocket, aligning top edge; set aside to dry. Roll red fondant into long 1/4 in. thick, roll blue into log 1/2 in. thick. Cut each in 3 in. sections. Position sections diagonally side by side on freezer paper, alternating colors; roll out. Cut out tie and knot (do not remove from paper). Work quickly to position tie on cake top; ripple tie and support with cotton balls, carefully peel off paper. Shape a small amount of white fondant into a not shape, cover with fondant knot cutout; tuck under edges and position at top of tie. Cut collar out of remaining white fondant; fold in half lengthwise, shape and place on cake over knot. Position pocket.

This cake looks great, I will be making it next week for father's day which is also my husband's birthday. Although, I will be putting the pocket on the other side because mens shirts pocket is always on the right side, and then I will be putting a cuff at the bottom left side with a fondant button to make it look that it is a long sleeve shirt. I think it will look more realistic to a shirt when it is still in package.

great looking cake! made it for my dad's birthday and it was a huge success! could be more clear with the instructions on how to shape the collar but overall this cake is fun and quite a breeze to make! (making the tie is the most fun)
