Isa's Toothless / Night Fury Cake
One of my friends called me saying she needed a cake for her daughter's birthday. I had the pleasure of doing Isa's cake when she was six, decorated in pink, with her nintendogs as topper. This time, however, her mom says she isn't into pinks, but really loves 'Toothless' in 'How To Train Your Dragon'. So I said, sure, leave it up to me and I'll come up with something. I was so excited! My family saw this movie in 3d and we loved the film! I mean, who wouldn't jump at the chance to include Toothless in a cake, right?! I had a quick thought of sculpting him from cake, but thought, nah. I'd better leave that to the experts, like Debbie (Goard) :) :) So I decided to make him as a topper, instead, so the birthday girl can keep it. I went to google to search for images, but there wasn't much to my liking. So I went to youtube and watched a lot of trailers of the movie, to get an idea of what he looks like at every angle. I went for the 'cute' looking Toothless rather than the 'fierce' looking Toothless as I thought it would appeal more for a young girl. My original idea was to have Isa (dressed like Astrid), reaching out with her hand to touch Toothless (just like Hiccup). But Isa's mom called the next day to say that she wanted another cake - a retirement cake with toppers. So I had to simplify my idea as I thought I wouldn't get to finish the models (and additional ones) in time. So, I went for the part where Toothless was being fed fish, and have him playfully holding a fish in his mouth before he's about to gobble it. I was gonna do Toothless in clay, but had more black icing readily available. My first attempt was a disaster! Toothless' neck was drooping, coz his head was positioned in a way that made it heavy for his neck to support it. And I thought that I would run into problems creating him in an all-fours position, with just icing. It was then that I had to re-think my sculpting approach and had to use inernal armatures. I used wire and foil for this body and wings, to keep him light. See photos below. Toothless, fishes, fish basket and part of the mossy grass are sitting on a 9 inch cardboard round, so it can easily be removed for keeping and allow the cake to be cut easily. The cake was made from a very high 10 inch choc mud cake and added more cake to the sides for added shape and form. All other elements are made from icing. I added some little flowers and butterflies to the cake to make it more 'girly'. Isa loved her cake. She and her friends squealed in unison, 'It's Toothless!!!' That made me smile :)
365.255 - let them eat cupcakes!
I'm working on some ideas for the girls first birthday and cupcakes seemed like a good idea. My cake decorating ideas are crap though... So I've made hummingbird cake cupcakes with just a standard buttercream frosting. Cake Recipe: Ingredients (serves 6) 250g self-raising flour 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon 1/2 tsp ground coriander 270g brown sugar 440g can crushed pineapple, drained 50g desiccated coconut 2 ripe bananas, mashed 1/2 cup chopped walnuts 2 eggs, lightly beaten 250ml (1 cup) sunflower oil Method: 1. Preheat oven to 170°C. Grease and line the base of a 23cm square cake pan. Sift flour and spices into a large bowl. Add sugar, pineapple, coconut, banana, walnuts, eggs and oil. Stir to combine. Spread into lined pan and bake for 40 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Place on a rack and set aside to cool. For the cupcakes - place in cupcake trays. I think the actual baking time was about the same but I was watching them like a hawk! Ingredients 185g butter, softened 2 1/4 cups icing sugar mixture Method Using an electric mixer, beat butter in a bowl until pale. Gradually add icing sugar mixture and milk, beating constantly until combined. 2 tablespoons milk
