Rilakkuma cake

Do u know japan’s laziest bear..yeah u guessed it..it’s Rilakkuma! Hehe

Got a request to make this cute bear from a small rainbow cake..so I baked a square rainbow cake in a 7×7 pan (which I just bought, specially for this cake project)..layer them..crumb coat and chill in the fridge for a while and carved the shape of Rilakkuma’s head πŸ˜‰

image

Cover the whole cake with brown buttercream (I was really happy with this color – mix brown and yellow)

image

Smoothed the buttercream and draw a white blob for his mouth and nose later on

image

Draw some details – eyes, nose n mouth

image

Add a black outline and fill in the ear with yellow frosting..and here we have my version of a Rilakkuma cake..

image

My “engineering drawing” for the cake..LOL

Cake project: Elmo cake

Elmo..either u love him or u despise him..hehe..he’s got a lot of fans out there..that’s for sure πŸ˜‰

Nurul requested the cake to be round..usually we would make elmo cakes with elmo’s head shaped..so round elmo it is πŸ˜‰

Baked a moist chocolate cake (1 batter) in a deep 10 inch pan and crumb coat it with red buttercream..I used a combination of americolor red colors – red red, super red and a bit of maroon..and used the grass tip to pipe elmo’s fur

image

I noticed elmo has a very large nose..so I cut out a rectangular piece of cake (leftovers from previous cake project)..shaped it into a large round nose and coat with orange buttercream

image

Put the nose in the freezer for a while, and once the buttercream hardens a bit, took it out and smoothed it using the back of a butter knife (or a spatula if u like)..and I piped some black buttercream for the eyes too πŸ˜‰

image

Assemble the parts and here we have an elmo cake..the eyeballs are just blobs of buttercream

image

It kind a look like any other monster from seasame street..hehe..if it is in blue it would definitely look like the cookie monster or even grover..LOL
