My child has more faith in my cake decorating skills than I do, and every year asks for something odd or out of the ordinary.

this year with all of 4 days notice for her birthday, she announced she wanted an effigy of her 5 year old, blind guinea pig called Chocolate.

I produced. mwaaaaa.

so I made a pair of chocolate loaf tin cakes, trimmed and sandwiched with ganache and buttercream between them. I then trimmed and carved the cake, applied a crumb layer of buttercream and let it harden while I went to make some features from coloured marzipan.
features made, I made another batch of buttercream, coloured some orange and left some white, coloured and flavoured the rest chocolate.....











whadya think?!

WHEEK WHEEK WHEEK!!!

That is adorable, I love the feet & nose detailing, so cute!  I love the picture of Chocolate the guinea pig next to the cake doppelganger!

This makes me want to attempt to bake cake versions of my guinea pigs!  Cheesy
