Mr Bump

Mr bump cake
I've been wanting to make a this cake for a while so when a slightly accident prone friend, with a thing for Mr Bump celebrated his birthday I jumped at the chance to give it a go!

At its heart this is a simple 6" sponge cake but the difficult part was making the limbs which were carved out of another cake. The trick was to chill the cake down to make it more solid before carving. I then added a layer of butter cream and chilled again.

When the limbs were properly solid then covering the limbs with marzipan and sugarpaste was quite straightforward.

Just to prove there really was cake inside!
The bandages were made from sugarpaste with added CMC to allow the paste to be rolled really thin for this nice layered effect. 

I'm quite proud of this cake. It was quite tasty too - even if I do say so myself!
