I’ve been wanting to do this cake since I first saw the movie! So, what a great excuse to purchase it on DVD. Watching the movie while making the characters really helps to get the feel of the theme going!
The cake was for my eldest son’s birthday (would have been cool to make this for a 9-year-old but he’s a bit older than that now). He didn’t have a theme in mind for a cake so gave me free reign to work on something hard!
So the cake is chocolate, chocolate fondant iced and the characters are made from gumpaste (and pasta). The backdrop is gumpaste too.
6 was my most favourite of the characters – love the contrast of him on the dark chocolate. I had help from my youngest son who drew 6’s sketch for me – fantastic job on that!
