I just LOVED how this cake turned out! I’ve done several cakes for this birthday boy – he just loves his reptiles!
This is what the marbled sugar paste looked like before I rolled it out to cover the cake – its about a kilo of fondant, marbled with three different shades of brown, a bit of flesh colour, a bit of yellow, and some black. It looked like a big tiger’s eye stone!
This chocolate cake has chopped Oreo cookies baked into it, layered with vanilla butter icing like the icing in the cookie.
The red and blue stripes on the cake reflect the colours of the French flag, and the lettering in his name is also layered sugar paste. The Eiffel Tower is drawn onto white sugar paste using an edible ink pen. -~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
