I haven't had the opportunity to make many cakes lately, so for my family's Christmas celebration I decided to bring a cake. And no ordinary cake, but Tardar Sauce the internet sensation Frumpy Kitty Cake:)
To start I printed off a picture of Tard the approximate size I wanted, and got a hunka hunka RKT. I wanted to be able to work in advance because of my work schedule so I decided to make the kitty himself out of RKT and place him on a cake. Since it was for Christmas I decided on a grumpy santa coming out of the chimney.
Added a gumpaste nose:
At this point I added an ear made of gumpaste, and stuffed it with wadded waxed paper until it was dry.
Then it was time for the chimney, coconut cake with chocolate ganache, looks a little lumpy, but I wasn't concerned with perfect edges for this one as it was going to be covered with textured "bricks" anyway:
I added some straws in the cake to support the weight of the RKT:
I was going to use fondant regularly for the snow, but on a whim I decided to use the microplane grater, with great results, For added snowy sparkle I sprinkled with a little disco dust on top, though it doesn't show in the photos
