Time to make
- 225 g Flour
- 2 tsp Baking powder
- 4 Eggs
- 225 g Margarine
- 225 g Caster sugar
- 6 tsp Vanilla essence
- 2 tsp Milk
- 1.5 kg Roll icing to cover
- 45 g Buttercream
- 6 tbsp Jam
- 125 g Sugar paste for figure
- 125 g Roll fondant for decortating
Baked the sponge first. Left to cool overnight.
Filled with jam and buttercream. Coated a thin layer of butter cream all over the cake.
I rolled out my white fondant icing to cover the cake and board.
I made the figurine out of sugar paste mixed with fondant. Rolled and shaped each body part by hand. I sculpted his abs with a sharp tool.
I then completed the writing with a letter cutter and other decorations by hand.
Made the topper myself with glitter card and wire.
Finished with some ribbon
