Cake, icing, fondant, modeling chocolate, pearl silver dust, pattern press, a lot of time ;o)
What was your inspiration?
This was a cake order that informed me the birthday boy LOVED Ralph Lauren Polo so after talking about different ideas, we came up with wanting a cake that was the POLO logo. Well I didn't want to do a simple sheet cake with a printed logo so i thought what better then to make a 3D version of the logo. I will say at first i meant to only have a small portion of the horse head and front hooves with maybe the players arm coming out of the cake...BUT of course once i started shaping everything i ended up making most of entire thing 3D. Not too bad for a night before request and a stove that caught on fire so i had to pack everything up and head to another location to bake it....oh was it a tricky Halloween night for me!
What are you most proud of?
The overall look I really liked - I could have should have on a lot of things but for my time crunch I was pretty happy
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I would plan on keeping some sticking components such as honey or jam when trying to use modeling chocolate tiny bits...I was not having a usual good adhesion with the horse harness, and after using icing or water to try and get it to stay in place...I had to grab the jam. Just a thought ;o)
