..If I just had cakes to do....it would be brilliant, and I'd do a lot more or them.....!
Anyway, he's a vanilla victoria sponge with butter-cream and strawberry jam filling. He took about 20 hours including cooking.
The flowers are fondant and attached with royal icing to dry spaghetti.
All stages of the cake are in my scrapbook if you'd like to see how he started....they have notes that are written mainly to myself as I keep makeing the same silly mistakes. I thought I would be able to refere to them if I need to....
If you would like to use this image for anything at all,
would you please let me know before you do so.....Thankyou..
Have you sculpted sponge cake before? I ask only because it was really difficult for me to do this cake. I had to shape the whole body and head from the stacked sponges as I didn't use a support rod.
Maybe you could use a support rod and carve the head separately?
Also, some of these other pictures may help ginas-cakes.deviantart.com/gal…
Thanks a lot for you help!!!
Boofle bear is really cute. I have never seen him before
I wish you well with your cake, and please let me know how you get on........and maybe even submit a picture, I'd love to see it
I think I used 6 inch tins. I usually use them if I'm going for the height rather than width.
....and sorry, I don't have a tutorial. This is a one off design and have found it really hard to help explain to people who
have wanted to try it out. It's just a lot of careful carving and patience. It took me over 4 days so parts could set/dry.
...and yes.....his right foot seems the best place to start
Thanks also for faving!
It seems to be a big hit. I didn't really enjoy making this as it was quite difficult, but really liked
how it turned out in the end.
