when i'm majorly stressed out 1) watch a lot of "sherlock hound" 2) bake. today i decided to combine the two using a new (to me) technique that i found on youtube. yeah, that's right! i made a moriarty cake! what a brilliant plan!
it all starts with a drawing.
remember, if you're going to make a cake like this, you're going to have to reverse the image so maybe trace over everything with a sharpie so it's easier to see through wax paper.
leff got me this AWESOME refillable food pen! i filled it with melted semi sweet chocolate
which i then used to trace out chocolate lines. SUPER easy!! (if you don't have access to one, you can make a fast piping bag with wax paper.)
leff keeps telling me that i should get proper tools for baking. i'm am beginning to think he's right because, to reiterate, HOLY CRAP SO EASY!
here's the step where i started filling in the spaces with colored whipped cream. i did the light to dark printmaking method (bwahaha) so you can see white to dark pink steps.
also in that picture you can see where i've put down a layer of white on moriaty's monocle. i filled in the rest with a blue which you can see below in the finished and in the freezer picture.
it doesn't matter if you layer different colored cream on top of other colors so long as they are frozen and, guess what IT IS SO AWESOME WHEN IT IS DONE!!!
i mean, seriously!!! even though the jaw broke off a bit, WHATEVER so cool!!
and also freaking delicious!
i am absolutely going to make more of these! maybe even one with prinnies! dood!
