I made this for a friend’s birthday, and it was my first attempt at using fondant. It’s the moon from Majora’s Mask. Someday I’d like the make a version that was only the moon.
I used the claymation tools I got from the Aardman exhibition in Melbourne and I loved sculpting it.
First, I carved the cake, including adding the nose.
Then it was covered in jam for adhesion. Also AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
Then the shroud of fondant. It was a very delicate process, and it did tear in some places as I moulded it to the cake
I painted the face using food dye and used black fondant to create the darkest spaces. I was very happy with the eyes.
Finally, it was placed on top of the base cake.
I figured that even if the moon didn’t work, there would still be a functional cake to devour. Ultimately it was tasty and horrifying and the birthday boy at the nose with gusto. It was very jam -y, apparently
