Happy -early- Birthday Jin by Mylares Happy -early- Birthday Jin by Mylares
Happy Birthday Jin! I know this is early, but knowing myself I'll probably wind up posting this a million years late.

I actually made the cake back in August (b/c I could not bring all my cooking gear with me to Texas).

It's a dutch chocolate cake with a strawberry center (and then of course, fondant icing on top).

So have a happy, wonderful (fattening) birthday! :hug:

:cake: :iconbehindinfinity: :party:

*starts cutting cake, serving it to everyone*

As a side note as far as the actual cake goes, this was a bit of a challenge for me. This was one of my first (more) complicated cakes. First, it's based off the mask Jin wore when he played the Fox in the Little Prince series. I made a few mistakes and had to go back and correct them (the white fondant for one, got color on it =(). And then, when I went to move the cake.......not good! So I wound up just cutting the board out around the cake. I refrigerated it for a while before putting it on a "stand" using my kimono as a BG.


P.S. This cake was baked, photographed, and eaten all within two days. :nod:

Yeah, Texas gets pretty hot! Although it was really cool when I lived there (ya'll get some insane winds! and your weather changes so quickly!).

I like the drier heat though, this Louisiana 100% humidity just sleighs me. :faint:

I'll take snow any day! :nod:

PS - You live in the US? I live in the US. (New York is several hundred miles from Texas, but whatever.) Will you bake me a cake? How about if I beg?

XD (j/k, no worries)

Haha, thank you very much! Several people said that, I guess I'd better make it more cake like next time. :giggle:

Oh and the BG is my kimono. I figured it would work with the "mask".

Thanks again (and sorry my reply was so late). :rose:

very cooL! at first i thought it was a button or some sculpture. then i read the description and discovered it was a delicious cake for a special occasion! This looks A+ to eat!

And beautiful kimono! We have many kimonos in our house too. The cake and kimono matches perfect, you just gotta wear it while eating.
