Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: The cake consists of 3 tiers of chocolate fudge cake. Crumb coated with buttercream and covered with fondant. It was quite a challenge to get the colour to the correct shade for the type of bull, Simontaler. The eyes, ears, tail and id marks were done with gumpaste. The initial drawing of the design took a while, because I could not find a proper picture on the internet to copy from. What I found interesting and challenging was to determine how many layers of cake I would need to produce a cake in this form to feed 50+ people. I got my guideline from the sculpted handbag cake.
