T-rex Cake

This cake made it all the way to our extended family in Calgary.  Dimension 10" in diameter by 4" tall. Logan loves his scary dinos Scary Trex without the leaf embellishments

3D Picachu Pokemon

Dimention:  12" high, 6" in diameter (excluding the tail)   Inside Picachu is a chocolate syrup drenched mocha chiffon cake.  I frosted and filled it with luscious and creamy mocha buttercream.   Chocolate streaks are from the chocolate soaking liquid. Chiffon cakes are pillowy soft and are not ideal for sculpted cakes.  To stop it from falling apart I inserted 4 bubble tea straws close to the edge of the first bottom three layers of the cake.  You will have to fill each layer first and then insert your bubble tea straws.  After the straws are in place a 6" cake pad on top of the 3 layer cake.  The straws and cake pad will act as pillars and base to hold up the remaining top two layers of the Picachu cake. Picachu's ears and arms are made with fondant.  The ears are supported by BBQ skewers and an arm is supported by  3 cocktail toothpicks.   How to make Picachu's electric tail.   Not including his ears Picachu is 9" tall
