Oh man. Doing fake food cakes is probably one of my top favourite types of cakes to make. I just think it’s so hilarious for some reason. Remember last year when I made this fish cake with a sad face? This year Adele asked me to create a steak cake instead!
I made two large sheet cakes and then set about frosting and carving them into a shape of a cartoon steak. I covered it in fondant, and painted on grill marks. I made little carrots out of fondant… and then… my piece de resistance… my favourite part… the baked potato!!! Using the trimmings from the sheet cakes, I shaped the cake into a potato-like shape using frosting and cake all mixed up. I chilled this in the fridge, then crumb-coat frosted it, smoothed it out and covered it in “potato” coloured fondant… then I split it down the center, piped in some buttercream, made a fondant “butter” pad and some fake parsley bits!
Haha. I thought my steak turned out pretty cartoony and cute! As usual it was sad to give it up. But if I kept all the cakes I made my house would be an explosion of stale cakes and hard fondant!!!
