I was looking for cat cake idea's for my daughters birthday and came across yours (the best I found) its amazing! It looks very life like and so well shapen,congratulations on a perfect cake. Pips Novelty Cakes xx
Basically, carved a thick square cake for the cushion, covered it in sugar paste, then carved another piece of cake into the cat shape, added details with more sugar paste, and painted it with food colouring!
Oh Lord, it looks SO real! I dunno if I would ever be able to cut it though. o.o; I mean, its lovely and you made it look beautifully realistic, but... I don't think I could cut a cake that looks so much like a living creature!
