Final Fantasy VII Cake

Final Fantasy Cake

This is the most recent incarnation of the chocolate cake recipe I recently posted.  This is a 6″ and 8″ chocolate cake, filled with vanilla swiss meringue buttercream coated in chocolate ganache (which I coloured black).  The flames are painted fondant and I modelled the Cloud figure and the Buster sword.  The figure was tricky, to say the least, but the client loved it so that’s all that matters really!  And she later told me it tasted great.  Phew!  I always have a massive fear that I have somehow cocked up on flavour, even though I can pretty much do this recipe in my sleep.  Good to know I’m safe for another cake.  Credit must go to “Celebrate with Cake” for their fantastic cake, which inspired mine.  It’s better than mine too.  I’m just starting out though…  That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it!
