So I finally found the pictures from the second Katzuma cake I made. You can read about the first cake here.
As I had already made the cake once, this one was much easier to produce.
On a canvas of green buttercream I traced Katzuma using piping gel. I started icing in the centre of his head drawing the outline of the nose and diamond first using a Wilton #3 tip. Then I added the eyes using #1 and #2 tips. For the eyes I drew the outline and pupils in black first, then the white and finally the blue. I also filled the nose and mouth before continuing with the red outline of the head and body.
Orange and red were piped using star tip 16 to complete the picture of Katzuma. The cake was bordered with a shell border.
Once again a simple fun cake that birthday girl and her friends alike loved.
