Chuggington Character Birthday Cake



Yesterday, I baked this cake for my younger boy to celebrate his birthday with his classmates today. He was so happy to see his later favourite Chuggington character 'Bastian' on his birthday cake. :)

Hi,

Forgive my ignorance, how do you draw the character so neatly ?

Any tips ?

Thanks & Best regards.

Hi Anonymous,

I placed a plastic sheet on the picture and trace over it with melted chocolate.

Hi About Me,

Thanks, I never attend a proper cake decoration class before. I just anyhow pipe the pattern on the cake. There are still lots... of room for improvement.

Hi Anonymous,

May I know how should I address you.

I can't promise you but I will try. As I don't have any helper to take photos while I'm decorating and I have to do it fast before my pot of chocolate set.

Hi Anonymous,

Once I done with the picture, I left it to set at room temperature first. Then I placed a plastic over it and put a light weigh on it, this will prevent the picture to bend and break. Then I put it into the fridge for later use.

Hi Anonymous,

I used book wrapping plastic which you can get from any bookstore.

Thanks for your reply. Will try someday..Another question..among all your sponge cake recipes..which is the easiest and most fail-proof ? Many thanks, Lilian

Hi Lilian,

If you are confident in whisking egg white then go for the separate egg method if not just use the whisking method (whisk egg and sugar together). If you wanted a fail-proof sponge cake then use sponge cake pre-mix.

Thanks. I will try out the sponge pre-mix. Have seen it in NTUC before.
