Fondant cakes #1: Wacky Cake Tutorial
I made a WACKY NAUGHTY CAKE a few months back and thought I’ll share how I made it.A birthday gift from my client to her hubby dear on his birthday.She wanted a really wacky cake of a lady’s bust.Each…. had vodka miniature bottles inserted inside just for kicks.;)Now here is the pictorial tutorial:
Step 1:Begin by baking two dome shaped cakes of six inches diameter.Cut into layers to fill.Start by filling the cake with chocolate ganache.Once filled,using a 1.5 inch steel cutter ,cut the center of the first layer to form a hole.Continue with the remaining layers of the cake except for the last layer.
The above image shows the last but one layer added on.
Step 2:Using a heated knife ,cut the top end of the vodka miniature bottles to fit into the height of the cake.Cover with aluminum foil and secure with rubber band.
Step 3:Insert the vodka bottle into each cake.
Step 4:Cover with the remaining top most portion of the cake and make a tiny hole to insert a straw.
Step 5:Frost the cake with chocolate ganache.(leaving the hole exposed).
Step 6:Repeat the same for the second dome cake too.
Step 7:Place both domes as close to each other as possible.
Step 8:Cover almost half of the domes with skin tone fondant and Cut out two circles using a 2 inch round cutter.Paste on top of the dome.Insert Smoothie straws inside each dome making sure it rests inside the bottle.
Step 9:Using a small ball of brown coloured fondant seal the ends where straw was inserted.
Cover the remaining portion of the cake with hot pink fondant.
Step 10:Cut out strips of black coloured fondant and paste over the hot pink cover.With the help of a lace cutter cut a strip of black fondant and paste to form the lace.
Step 11:Make a bow out of hot pink fondant and attach to the middle.
Step 12:Make a man’s figure out of fondant and attach in between the two domes.
Hope all enjoyed going through this tutorial!;)
