Pewter looking kitten

Do you sell this cake? No, just for fun Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake I wanted to experiment more with the pewter look on some cake decorations and to work within modeling chocolate limitations as it does not stretch like fondant. So I fashioned this kitty lying on a cushion. I made it out of modeling chocolate so it is edible then I coated it with an edible silver glaze. I put a fantasy sugar flower by it to dress it up a bit. The cake itself is gluten free chocolate with raspberry butter cream filling (four layers of cake and three layers of filling) and white butter cream icing covering the whole cake. I then cut out several different cat silhouette poses from modeling chocolate and attached them to the sides of this cake.

Q&A with Bobert

Garden Baker asked:
I love the "simple" cat sillouettes on the side. They must be very thin cause they don't seem raised at all.
Bobert answered:
Thank you. I rolled out some black fondant then hand cut the silhouettes attaching the six different kittens to the cake with a small amount of water.
