This was a later request from a customer who wanted to know if I had done a cake like the Child, or Baby Yoda, before. I told him that I hadn’t but would love to do one. Sometimes the best part of doing these cakes is the thrill of having never done one before like this.
The sculpture is based on a 5" round, six layer cake built on a simple armature of two plastic dowels rods. The body is sculpted and covered in a thin layer of buttercream, then a layer of chocolate ganache. Finally, the clothing is a textured fondant. The head is sculpted form cake with a layer of buttercream, then ganache, and finally the details are all in modeling chocolate. The eyes are made from Candy Glass in a three step process.
