Winnie The Pooh in Marzipan

Here’s a cake I made four years ago, for my sister’s baby shower. I realized I never posted pictures and that seemed like a shame. So here it is:

The cake. I can’t even remember what recipe or flavor it was, but I wanted to try the basket weave technique.

The Pooh. I used Marzipan to shape these figures. The colors are food coloring or icing colors. The honey dripping from the pot is honey mixed with cornstarch to thicken it up.

The Shower. Lesson learned: Thou shalt use stands for thy marzipan decorations on soft, tender cake. Piglet got very sleepy and didn’t want to stay up the whole time. But otherwise, they did alright.
