I haven’t been around the boards for the last while and I haven’t really been baking a whole lot lately. I have had some big changes at work and it has kept me busy.
I did manage to make a birthday cake for a co-workers grandson this weekend. He wanted a cake with Yoda ( from star wars on it ) This is the first time I have ever sculpted anything and the birthday boy was very excited when he saw the cake. I actually got a huge hug from him.
The cake itself is the white velvet butter cake with choibust cream filling and white chocolate mousseline buttercream. I tempered dark chocolate to make chocolate shards to put around the cake. Yoda is sculpted from rice krispies and fondant.
Although I am no artist, I think he kind of looks like Yoda. At least the birthday boy knew who he was.
