Running Man

This was the last special occasion cake I made in 2009.It was also the first time I made a stand up figurine. All my other figures always have some kind of support on them. They're usually sitting on some other object, but this time... it stands on its two legs :0).

I had to use wire for support as it didn't seem possible for two pieces of spaghetti to hold up the whole figure...heheh. I wasn't too pleased with the way it turned out, but hey... it's a first!

I did like the little doggie tho!

Raspberry Chocolate Entremet

I made this cake back in November for one of my dearest friends. I know it's so long overdue, but it's better late than never :o).

This entremet consists of layers of chocolate cake, chocolate mousse, rapsberry gelee and fresh berries on top. I was originally planning to pour ganache over the cake, but I was having trouble taking out the cake from the "mold". I didn't have a cake frame, so I used a d.i.y. frame made of cardboard box. It shouldn't be a problem except that the cake decided to stick to the bottom cardboard and I was having a hard time getting if off. By the time I got it off, it wasn't frozen anymore and I didn't have time to let it re-freeze. Ended up settling with fresh berries on top. Didn't look too bad for a last minute change of plans ;-).
