Police Detective nicknamed Hippo 4 sided cake

Daily Top 3 - Jun 29, 2013

Had a real struggle getting this cake made as I had to stay at work until 2:15am to decorate it after spending the day at my Father-In-Laws Funeral, but couldn’t let such a lovely client down by cancelling
This was for a Local Police Detective whose nickname is Hippo or Potty sort for Hippopotamus…? origin unknown
so 1 side is a NZ police uniform with edible NZ Police buttons I made a mould from an actual button
another side is a wooden wall with his favourite saying “I am the Man” & edible tools as he’s a keen DIY kinda guy
another side is the All Blacks Jersey with his nickname on it & edible rugby ball
& the last side is the side of a fish with fin the 40 for his birthday & a worm on a hook as he loves fishing
The topper is a Hippopotamus wearing a Chef’s hat as he loves to cook & is probably the only Cop in history that doesn’t drink Coffee so he has a mug of hot chocolate with mini marshmallows

8"8" Square 9" high : Butterscotch Baileys Mud with Dark chocolate Ganache
