Chainsaw Battlecats


Battle Cats is Japanese tower defence game launched in 2012 and rereleased in 2017.  The birthday boy is a big fan of battle cats he got a similar cake last year.  (This cake can be found here)..
Originally I wanted the chainsaw attached to battle cat's vehicle.  Unfortunately the chainsaw was too heavy and the cake is not dense enough to hold it into place.  I had to put in on the cake board and use it as a background for the celebrants name. Perhaps it would have been better if I use wafer sheets to create the chainsaw or install a heavy, dense base that can hold the the heavy chainsaw.


THIS IS THE BASIC SHAPE OF THE CAKE

I used the ball cake mould for this cake.  I baked 3 pieces so one whole ball and a small bowl for the bottom base piece.

This is a full ball cake.  I cut off 1/3 of the top layer to create the shape for battle cat's vehicle.  To prevent the cake from tipping and rolling around I added at o thick piece of fondant at the bottom of the cake.  I am going to trim off the excess cake pad, smooth out the buttercream and then cover the whole thing with white fondant.


I am going to cut off the excess cake pad, smoothed out the buttercream, and cover it with white fondant.
Once covered I insert 3 bubble tea straw.  The straw will support the weight of the upper tier.

 



It should look like this.
I then proceed into making the trailer.  I cut twelve 2.5 cm by 7 cm strips of foam core.  Apply a bead of hot glue along the foam side of the strips. Glue together 3 strips at a time.  You will end up with 4 sides.  Glue 4 sides together to create a box (as seen in the picture below).  trace the shape of the box.  Cut out the resulting shape.  This will be the base of the box.  To create the base board of the box hot glue a 3 cm by 8 cm strips.  Do this to all sides.  
Once the box is finished attached 4 small pieces of straw at the bottom of the box.  This will hold the box up.   Once the straws are attached you may attach the fondant tires with candy melts.

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
