Last week I had a request to make a cake for a 40th birthday. After much deliberation it was decided that a tyre cake with a figurine of the Stig (from Top Gear) would be best . Thinking that a figurine of the Stig would be readily available in the toy shops I agreed. After over a day of searching for said toy, I gave up! So, I tried my hand at sculpting one out of modelling chocolate. My Stig looks like he’s had a bit too much cake to eat compared to the real Stig, but it was the best I could do.
The cake was white chocolate mud cake with vanilla buttercream, covered in black fondant, on a black and white fondant checkerboard base.
The cake was delivered to the Rydges Lakeside in Canberra, unfortunately I don’t have a picture of the cake with the Stig placed on top as this was done immediately before serving by the customers.
the cake turned out fantastically well! So many comments and smiles all around. The cake was excellent so fresh and tasty. Thankyou fiona it was truly amazing!!!!!! Loretta
