This cake was one of my biggest challenges so far for so many reasons, I was amazed and so grateful (to my husband primarily) that somehow I managed to pull it through! Firstly, making the horse proved to be much more difficult than I imagined but it was worth watching hours of sculpting videos on youtube ;-) The theme was also something I’ve never heard of before, a British series about the Manchester mafia gangs of the 1920’s so this was something I had to study too. The worst of all was that one day before delivery I got brutally sick with influenza, the worst i had in years. I was seriously thinking to call the client and cancel everything but I managed to get myself out of the bed late in the evening and worked nearly all night together with my husband, my partner in crime :-) He helped me with all the cut-outs that I had to paint and texture, didn’t come out perfect but the fact that we did it together was so rewarding!
The figurine represents the main character played by Cillian Murphy.
Thank you for looking, happy baking to all <3
