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

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 

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

Minion Cupcake Cake

This is how I made my Ube (purple yam) Minion cupcake..  Enjoy! Come see how I made it in this youtube video.  Don't forget to subscribe for more updates! Used Wilton tip 1M to create the rose pattern on the cupcake.  Start pipping from middle cupcake and out. To create the eyes...  You will need 3 different sizes of round cookie cutter (3", 2.5, 1 inches, white fondant, grey fondant (goggle frame), light brown fondant (iris), and black fondant, large ball tool, and piping gel.  Cut out a 3" circle out of grey and white fondant.  Set aside in large ziplock bag.  Cut out a 2.5" circle in the middle of the grey circle.  This will be the frames for the minions goggles. With a small brush apply a small amount of water along the perimeter of the white circle.  Lay down the grey frames on top of the white circle.  Using a ball tool (See pic bellow) make an indent on the bottom centre of the white circle.  Place the brown 1" circle in the di

Easy Soccer Ball cake

This soccer ball cake is easy to make.  To create the soccer ball shape I used a approximately 8" Stainless steel bowl, and an 8" round cake pan. You may use glass bowl but you have to reduce cooking time.    This is how I assembled my soccer cake. The naked cake... As you can see there are 3 layers to this cake.  The bottom layer is 8" round cake.  The top layers are just one bowl shaped cake that I split into two sections.   I stack the layers first to see how they fit together.  I noticed that the middle layer overhangs a bit on the 8" round cake.  I trimmed off the excess cake using a sharp carving knife.   Each layer is filled with chocolate buttercream. Chocolate crumb coat...  This part can be omitted since we are applying the buttercream with an icing tip.  I crumb coated chocolate for added flavor because having just the white vanilla icing is too boring.   Do not worr
