Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: This cake was for a mans 40th birthday. He is a art lover with a great sense if humor so the request was having to do with the painting mostly and how can we make that into a cake with a joke of his age?! SO I thought of a gentleman's side table. It will have the art, a watch as a gift and then a joke of Viagra pills for his age. Everything you see is edible. I made everything on the table from modeling chocolate and fondant while the table was made of a yummy espresso Godiva liqueur chocolate cake & liqueur cream icing covered in fondant. I was so nervous about the painting but was thrilled once things started to shape correctly. Not having great success with mixing gel colors with vodka for painting, I was extremely happy with the use of Everclear. It dries ten times fast and the colors were left with a great matte finish in the fondant and not sitting on top to then get back on your fingers...pain! I rolled a large block of modeling chocolate out and then used a very thin layer of fondant on top to use as my canvas. I then sketched out the main parts of the painting and then gradually added the color on until I got the look I wanted. I rolled another piece of modeling chocolate out and curled up to use as the bottle. Attached a fondant label and made the pills out of more modeling chocolate. The watch was pieced together by me rolling out modeling chocolate, cutting to shape and individually places the little rectangles on, dusting with a combination of silver, bronze, and gold.
