In the last few years I've gotten interested in decorating cakes and such. So, when my brother's birthday came around, I knew I had to do something special, random, and something he wouldn't think I could do. Last year, I (with the help of my mom) made him a Nintendo Wii controller, this year was different though. After pondering on what to make, I finally figured it out. A Rabbid cake!
My brother doesn't like Fondant, so we had to use icing the whole time. You eventually learn hot water is your best friend for smearing it on the easy to pull off cake. The eyes. After first we thought of marbles and my mom thought of a wooden ball. I then had the idea to use giant gumballs, so we got four giant gumballs (just in case we had any mess ups) from those gumball machines. (I used hot water to strip the gum of it color and then used icing gel to make the pupils and rings) All and all, it took about four to five hours to finish, but it was well worth it. He was super surprised and couldn't stop smiling.
