The week after Chelsea’s birthday was her big brothers. Having made such a fuss over Chelsea I felt that Hamish deserved something extra special too…
Hamish is a big fan of Marvel comics and had wanted a ‘Man-thing’ cake. His Mum was concerned that it would be a greenish, brownish blob, so I opted for the more attractive 1st issue design with man-thing ‘climbing out’.
I covered and hand-painted the comic book design and then built up the character in cake. I then painted on the shadows to tie it in with the style of the comic book.
As there were only 9 children at Hamish’s party I made them each a 3.5″ mini cake with a Marvel logo on.
I cut a 12″ cake into 9 and jammed and covered them all. Most of the logos were based on a circle cut shape with hand cut details.
They went down like hot cakes! These cakes are not available to order due to copyright issues and were made just for fun for a dear friend and her family.
