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

Used a 12" cake pad and cut out this shape.
Warning!  Make your cutout smaller than your
desired tail size.  Applying fondant will add
1/8 " to each side.
Wrap floral tape around the horizontal supports.
I made the support too long so I cut both supports down
to 1" long instead.
 
  
Apply generous amount of pipping gel on both sides of the prepared tail.  Roll out your yellow fondant.  Wrap the yellow fondant around the whole tail.  Wrap brown fondant at the bottom half of the tail.   The seams should be facing picachu's body.  

With a paring knife make a 2 deep incision at the back of picachu.  Match up the incisions with the tail supports.  Carefully insert the tail.  You may have to hold on to the side of the cake board for 
leverage.  

Tada!  Its a bit wrinkly coz I forgot to add
pipping gel to the card board template.  Whoops!

Pilipit - Filipino Twisted No Yeasts Donut

Pilipit is a Filipino style donut.  It has a crunchy outer shell and a soft inside.  It is similar to bannock or elephant ears.  These are similar to donuts and leavened with baking powder.  Traditionally coated with sugar or glazed

I coated mine with powder sugar kind of like their elephant ears counter part.  But you know what they are perfect on their own without sugar.  The dough is sweet enough to hold on its own.  


The ones that I made are for some reason soft on the inside.  I'm certain it's because I rested my dough for more than 30 minutes instead of the usual 15 minutes.  If you guys want more crunch in your pilipit just proof it (resting stage) for 15 minutes or less.
