i wanted to make my little brother a special birthday cake for his 20th birthday.  he loves world of warcraft, and his main character is a tauren shaman, so i wanted to make him a shaman themed cake.



i have to admit that nothing was from scratch.  i used boxed chocolate cake mix, canned vanilla frosting, and bagged raspberry filling from a local baking supply shop.  i'm so glad i did because it came out so much better than if i made it all myself.  i'm good at baking, but i just can't get my cakes right if i don't use mix.  besides, the decorating is my favorite part!

it has 4 layers of cake; 2 round cakes cut in half horizontally.  i filled it with a generous amount of raspberry filling, and frosted the outside with vanilla frosting.  then i used toothpicks to draw my design in the frosting.  the colored frosting is just the canned stuff tinted with powdered food coloring.  i find that it works better than the liquid and gel because it doesn't add any moisture to the frosting.  all the stirring gives the frosting a nice consistency for piping.  i just use ziplock bags as piping bags.  no clean up!  i wanted to add rice krispy treat totems, but i thought that would be a bit much.

this was seriously the best cake i've ever made.  better than our amazing local bakery.  again, i give credit to betty crocker and tapp's cake emporium for that. Tongue

my brother absolutely loved it!

Cute!  I play a shaman too! He's my main, and a troll, but I have a huge soft spot for tauren.  Most of my characters, as well as my boyfriend's main, are cow people!  I'm tempted to steal this idea for him...  Unfortunately, he plays a druid, and their symbol isn't quite as pretty. Sad

Nice job!

Awesome cake!!!  I'm in the middle of knitting up a warlock hat for the BF, but one of his alts is a shammy.  He would LOVE something like this.

I always have issues keeping the different frosting/icings where I want them to be when I try multiple colors.  Yours came out so pretty!

thanks everybody!

i have problems sometimes too.  i try to hold the tip as close to the cake as possible, which helps a bit.  if i mess up, i just add some more frosting to cover up the mistake if i can lol.  if you have any questions i'll be more than happy to help out as much as i can.  Smiley

Awww, thanks!  I might have to take you up on that in the next few weeks.  Real life will be kicking up the stress a bit, and I always end up baking!   Grin
