Kung Fu Panda Cake
Cake with the Kung Fu Panda Theme for an 8 year old boy. 10 inch square cake (chocolate w. choc. bc). Background landscape is painted with food color (and vodka). The images on the sides are cut out from gum paste and painted before attached. Mountain is made of rice krispy treats and a small bit of styrofoam on the very top. Panda is made from gum paste. I have never made figures before so I was worried about the construction of the cake. At first, when I attached the panda to the mountain I only had RKT inside and it could not hold the weight of the panda. So I added some styrofoam and that did the trick. It held up really well and did not move at all during the party.
