Ballerina cake

Nov 22, 2010

This was a cake for a 6 year old girl’s ballerina themed birthday party. I wasn’t sure how to complement that in a cake except to actually make a ballerina, so eventually I  gave up trying to think of something easier and started to work on making a figure.  It’s the first time I’ve done such a large 3-D figure that you see from all angles, and I think it worked out pretty good  (although admittedly the front looks better than the purposefully unpictured back).  She is completely edible, save a skewer and a toothpick for support; her body is cake, her limbs fondant and her head is actually a hollow chocolate sphere filled with smarties. I think she’s pretty cute, so I’m not sure I’d want to be the one getting at the smarties.

Lisa, this is amazing. How big is she?

she's maybe just over 10cm from the cake to her head, so not too big
