I made this last month. Before baking the cake, my oven thermostat broke. Thank God I stored the contact number of the technician and I smsed him immediately. He went the next day and fixed it the day after. I was afraid I won’t be able to make it on my customer’s deadline, but thankfully I was able to finish it on her desired date.
Aside from the oven, I had problems with the toppers as well some of the character topper’s icing became grainy and wouldn’t dry out, so I have to repeat almost all of them.
I know it’s messy on top. I took the picture before cleaning it up hehe. 🙂 But anyway this is the interior of the cake. 🙂 The customer wanted a Rainbow Cake, before baking this cake i was debating whether to bake each cake batter separately or just bake it all at the same time. I’ve decided though to bake it in two separate cake pans, 3 colors each.
I usually don’t place the icing toppers the day before, the reason is when moisture reaches the icing, the icing bleeds and this results to ugly and soft watery toppers. I used to put letter toppers the day before together with the cupcakes and the results always been like that so from then on I always place the toppers before leaving the house that way, the toppers will maintain it’s crunch and bleeding won’t occur.
I have to say disney character toppers are the hardest toppers I have made so far. The eyes are important. I was kind of frustrated that I didn’t get Snow White’s eyes right, it’s just so hard, even if I drew them as a kid, I had a hard time drawing/sketching the eyes, mouth and hands. The dwarfs I kind of got the technique last minute hehe.
I think my favorite dwarf topper would be Grumpy, he looked like Grumpy and he’s so cute. 🙂 I had fun making
this cake although I have to overcome a lot of obstacles as I made this cake, it’s a fulfilling achivement. Below are the rest of the pictures of the dwarves. Thanks for reading my post! 😀
