I would like to thank Singapore Tourism Board for giving me the honor to be a part of the Merlion's 40th birthday celebrations at the Merlion Park. http://www.channelnewsasia.com/stories/singaporelocalnews/view/1225641/1/.htmlhttp://www.channelnewsasia.com/stories/singaporelocalnews/view/1225641/1/.html
The Merlion cake measures in at 40cm (W) x 50cm (L) and stands at a total height of 0.7m. The final weight came to approx 25kg.
The Merlion itself is sculpted mainly from rice krispy cereal and covered with marzipan and fondant. The wave shaped base is shaped from my popular, moist chocolate fudge cake while the water spurt is made with isomalt.
