Video Game Cakes

 I was asked to do some video game cakes for boys recently. One was for Assassin's Creed, the other for Angry Birds. The Assassin's Creed character was a bit of a challenge, I had to decide whether to do it in regular ol' frosting or fondant for a more polished look. I ended up going with the fondant, which meant putting together the pieces like a big jigsaw puzzle. Tricky, but turned out good. I had to also figure out what to do with the face, because half of it is covered in shadow so I used black frosting there to create that effect. I used Wilton's color spray to give the originally white fondant a grayer look and the color dust to make the silver color on the armor.
 Detail view of body armor. Crazy details.. Ack. He even wears lace, my husband says, "He must be European." lol.

 Angry birds and piggies made of fondant.
My four year old nephew loved this cake, he kept telling everyone as they arrived at the party, "This is my Angry Birds Cake" in his broken English as they entered. Cute!
