Birthday Cakes

Daughter's 10th Birthday

Well, another year has passed and I wanted to try to learn from the past and try a few new things.  This cake is based on the popular stuffed animals and internet web side for WebKinz.

This year I tried using modeling chocolate to create the 3d figures.  It worked much better once we were able to figure out how to make the stuff!  It's not hard to make, but it does take some practice to get it right.

Due to time constraints, I got a lot of help from my wife.  She made all the animals except the dog which I did.  I have to say, once we got used to working with it, we had a lot of fun.  We ended up with more animals than we had room for on the cake!

The 'W' is just a cake with fondant on it.  I used my new airbrush to create the rainbow effect... I need more practice with it!

The braid around the edge of the cake is also modeling chocolate.
