Prepare your favorite cake. Cover the surface thickly with heavy cream
Prepare the character sheet by cutting it to the size of the cake. Place an oven sheet on top of the stencil sheet, and secure it with tape so that it doesn't move.
Finely break up a chocolate bar, place into a pastry bag, tightly squeeze the tip, and melt the chocolate in a hot water bath. (Make sure water doesn't get inside!!)
Cut the tip of the pastry bag a bit, trace the stencil sheet without smashing the fine points! Draw the larger parts thickly so that it doesn't bend.
Place Step 4 into a flat shallow dish etc. and let harden well in the fridge.
Prepare the jam. If you have jam that you want to use then just use that, but if you don't then add food coloring powder to a thinly colored jam. Strain the jam.
This time, skin color = apple jam + a small amount of red food coloring, red = strawberry jam + yellow good coloring, and blue = apple jam + blue food coloring.
After Step 5 has hardened, be careful not to fold it and remove the sheet, then place it on top of the cake.
Use the tip of a small spoon to color in-between the chocolate lines. After filling in the detailed parts with a spoon, spread it out with a toothpick.
After coloring it all in, the character is complete Decorate it with fruit and heavy cream, and it's done .
Story Behind this Recipe
This is a birthday cake I made upon request of a friend The color is more vibrant than character chocolate, and is easy to cut so I have been making characters a lot in this way recently.
You don't have to worry about failing as long as you are able to do the chocolate lines nicely. Characters that have a lot of fine lines fold easily which makes it difficult, but it's easier if you choose a character where you can easily draw thicker lines for the face .
