Battle Cats Cake - Tin Cat


Tin Cat's spaceship is made with crispy rice treats.  One recipe of crispy rice should be enough.  Prepared rice crispy treats is enough too.
Crispy rice treats:
3 cups mini marsmallow
5 cups crispy rice treat
1/4 cup butter

Place butter in a large glass bowl.  Melt butter in microwave for 1 minute.  Stir in mini marsmallow.  Microwave for 1 minute until marsmallow are melted.  Incorporate rice crispies into marsmallow until well coated.  Let sit for a 5 minutes.  


SCULPTING THE SPACESHIP

Materials needed:

One 6" wide ball cake pan
shortening
pastry brush
10" cake board

The wingspan of the spaceship is close to 10".  I grabbed a handful of rice treats and started forming two 1" thick wings.  ( See picture for template).  I then greased one of the ball cake pan with shortening and stuff it with rice treats.  

Place the wings on the 10" cake board.  Unmold the rice treats in the ball cake pan.
Place it on top of the wings.  Reshape the crispies treats according to desired shape.
I ended up adding more crispy treats on the back end of the space ship.  

Covered the whole thing with shortening base buttercream.  Place it in the fridge for
15 minutes.  Take the rice treat spaceship out of fridge once buttercream is firm to the
touch.  Take a clean paper towel and smooth out the surface of the buttercream.

Cover the whole space ship with grey fondant.  After all the trimmings are added I painted the whole ship with silver pearl dust and purple pearl dust dissolved in vodka.


TIN CAT

It is made with 2 layers of 6" cakes: 6" round cake and 6" ball shaped cake.  I stacked the two cake layers on an 8" cake board.  I put a thin layer of buttercream crumb coat on the cake, chilled it for 30 minutes or until the buttercream is firm to the touch.  On the cake I used a buttercream prepared with real unsalted butter.   I smoothed out the cake and covered it with white fondant.  I then proceeded to adding all the finishing touches to the cake.

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

Hello Kitty Cupcake Cake

 This is my favourite.  I put together 37 cupcakes to create this cute hello Kitty cake. Buttercream Recipe: 1 cup butter at room temperature 4 cups sifted icing sugar 1 tablespoon vanilla extract 3 tablespoon milk The amount of icing sugar, vanilla extract, and milk can be modified to suit your taste.  Beat the butter until smooth then add the rest of the ingredients beat everything on medium speed on electric beater until smooth.  Enjoy!

This is how I arranged the ube cupcakes.  31 all together.

3 Dimensional Elmo Cake

I made this Elmo cake for my cousin's daughter, Jayla who turned 3 a few weeks ago for her Sesame Street Themed birthday party.  The cake was a marble chiffon cake crumb coated and filled with chocolate buttercream.  For Elmo's fur I used Wilton's "grass tip" to pipe out red vanilla buttercream.  Elmo's eyes and nose are made with fondant which I secured using toothpicks. Used Wilton Doll Cake Mould for the body. Sports ball cake pan for Elmo's head. Inserted straw for structure support. Filled each layer with chocolate buttercream. Normally I trim the tops of cake to create an even surface here I kept the dome and turned it into Elmo's slightly open mouth.  Make sure the top half of the circle is smaller than the bottom half.   Important note:  Elmo's unique qualities are his big wide upward smile, his football shaped head, and the top half of his head is smaller than the bottom.  Its hard to achieve
