Pokemon cake. Homemade modelling chocolate over ganache and carved red velvet cake.
Homemade modelling chocolate figures. Lucario, Charizard and Pikachu. A minimal amount of flower wire was used to provide the framework for the standing figures. I made a very firm batch of modelling chocolate, so the figures are very strong and largely self-supporting.
The sphere was created by cooking a red velvet cake in two metal mixing bowls. I layered each hemisphere and filled the layers with ganache to help with the structure. There is a single short dowel to help anchor the bottom hemisphere there are then 4 straws about an inch from the centre dowel to support a small board between the bottom and to hemispheres. Once the halves were “glued” together with Ganache I then trimmed the cake to make sure it was round, then covered it with ganache and chilled it before covering it in homemade modelling chocolate.
Ever wanted to try making your own modelling chocolate?
