Drawing from a photo a Cat Topper for Mother’s Day Cake

Standard

This was a new challenge for Me, I had a photo sent too my phone of this family’s much loved cat….which was too be the main feature of this surprise Mother’s Day cake.

So I got my cake decorating pens out, and while holding my phone worked out a outline of the cat with 1 of my decorating tools , then set out too colour in the cat …being black and white…..I coloured the top of head, ears,nose etc….then eyes…and then added grooves for the white….

It took a bit of time and the cat I drew it a little slimmer but overall  I was happy with the outcome.

I cooked a Red Velvet Cocoa Cake 4inch and topped it with Cream Cheese Icing.

Marbled some white and grey fondant together and covered the cream cheese icing.

Cut out from black  fondant some cat silhouttes with a scalpel and glued them on the sides of the cake with sugar glue.

Added some black and marbled fondant balls around the cat plaque and base of cake.

All done…
