One of my latest custom cakes was for one of my very good clients for her sons birthday.
Last year, I had made her 2 cakes for the very same occasion in the theme of racing cars .
1- Lighting McQueen cake from the movie Cars
This cake was a made in a shaped mould and then iced to matched the cartoon. This is a standard technique for making custom cakes, but still a nice effect.
2- A Race track .
For this cake I used black fondant to for the racetrack and then made the sides of the cake look like the checkered flags.
For this year’s cake, the theme was ninja.
Fondant was used to make the ninja’s face, striped and nun chucks.
For the stars, as I wanted them to stay rigid and hard standing up in the cake, I opted for gum paste.
To achieve the silver metal look I used silver lustre dust mixed with vodka to make a paint.
This was such a fun cake to make and I loved the final result.
