It was that time of year again, the birthday of my biggest critic, my Nephew Kai who turned 6 a few weeks ago. Every year we go through multiple ideas before he settles on the exact cake he wants, and this year was no exception. The idea that he settled on was a large replica model of the lego ninja kai placed on a round cake…

The cake itself was a 7inch chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream. The character was made out of gumpaste so that he could keep it once the cake was eaten. The ninja stood about 15cm tall. I was really happy with how the character turned out. Kai had given me one of his toy figures so this enabled me to copy the detail, including the gold sword which I strapped to his back. The photo below shows the size of the figure compared to the actual toy. I was so glad he liked his cake and he had a lovely birthday.
