Birthday Cake – Kadabra
class="at-above-post addthis_tool" data-url="https://www.anncoojournal.com/blog-pos/">
Sean Tze passed me a piece of paper printed from the websites few days ago said he wants Kadabra to be on his birthday cake. At first glance, I asked: Who is this? (I expected he wants R2-D2 or Darth Vadar from Star War) He told me this is Kadabra and it is belong to a Pokemon family. Well, since Sean Tze is celebrating his 7th birthday today with his friends, I baked a 3kg chocolate sponge cake with orange chocolate ganache and chocolate mousse in the cake, of course Kadabra is a must on the cake. But I had put two wrong colors, the star on the forehead of Kadabra should be pink and the spoon is silver color. Anyway Sean Tze liked the cake and he didn’t complain about the colors ;))
I’m quite curious about this Kadabra so I checked on the sites of Pokemon…Kadabra is a strong psychic Pokémon that owes much of its power to the alpha waves, it emits from its body at all times. These alpha waves are affected by Kadabra’s current mental state – if it has a headache, the waves change. The psychic power it gives off can also trigger off headaches to nearby humans. It is also said to grow more powerful when faced with a difficult opponent. The silver spoon that Kadabra holds amplifies the waves’ power – if it does not hold a spoon, it is said to be limited to half the usual amount of its telekinetic powers.
Happy 7th Birthday Sean Tze!
Kadabra is a favorite character of my niece. I can relate to you because my niece wants the same for her upcoming birthday! great post and delicious cake you have there.Buy Cakes
hahaa…the very first time when I made the Barney was also a mess and its took me more than 3 hours to complete the transferring and at that time I was using piping jelly. Sometime when the surface is not smooth what I do is to dust some sprinkles on top to cover the ugly part.
After your first attempt I'm sure you can do a better job next time. Yes the white chocolate harden very fast, the only way is to soften it again under double boiler.
I saw some color in powder form at PH, would like to try it for the white chocolate next time.
Oh I am eager to see your job, must be good 🙂
Anyway thank you very much for your compliment.
I tried the transfer today and done the make-up for the cake. Phew!! Really have to said peifu peifu to you. How you even the whipping cream so neatly and whipped till so detail. My whipping cream melt on me and had a hard time applying the foundation till smooth. Overall not so pro,but i'm really happy. I tried to tint the white chocolate but it harden very fast, did you use candy melt. Will post the foto tommorow. Pls drop by if you're free to take a look. Thank you very much.
Omg! You have a pair of delicate hand. :O
I put the cake in the freezer because I need the cake surface to be firmed so that I can place the cartoon on it, about 2-3hours.
After everything is done just store the cake in the fridge.
I usually make the cake two days ahead before the big day.
Hi! Happen to found your blog, while searching for some deco for my daughter birthday cake. Thought of doing a simple fruit cake, but saw your cake sooo beautiful. May i know how you store the cartoon chocolate? Do i need to freeze the cake after covering with fresh cream and how long. Thank you!
Belated bday wishes to sean, cake looks wonderful ann…
