As much as I would of wanted a sculpted elephant cake, this was more in keeping with my skill set. Ganesha sits IMG_7086proudly atop this layer cake. I printed out a line art drawing of Ganeesh and laid wax paper over it, then I piped melted chocolate following the drawing underneath. I flipped the image on top of the iced cake, let it chill and then peeled the wax paper away. For color I used colored sugars. It was pain free experience, always a good thing. I had baked the layers last night and iced them chilled, much easier. I also cut away the center humps of each layer, in the hopes the cake  would look more level. Now I’m ready for a piece!IMG_7085IMG_7087
