My Totoro cake
The other day I was scrolling through anime pictures when I found a website with the most amazing looking cakes with Totoro icing figures on top of it and I fancied a go myself. I got some Dr Oetker fondant icing in red, yellow, green, blue and black (in one box) and bought some of Tesco's own white roll-out icing and modelled these figures. I made them the day before I made the cake and stored them in a cupboard at home. I made a plain sponge the next day, iced it and then placed the characters on top. I created the broom from 'Kiki's Delivery Service', Calcifer from 'Howl's Moving Castle', No Face from 'Spirited Away' and the three Totoros from 'My Neighbor Totoro' and a tree because, well, why not?
Hint- If you want to make a colour always add the coloured icing to the white rather than the white to the colour because otherwise you end up using up more icing than you need to.
Do let me know what you think!
