Foot-in-cast Cake

2013 02 Foot Cake (3)

My very sweet colleague broke her foot, so I had a brainwave to make her a cake.  I looked for inspiration on the Interwebs, and found this at Cake Central. I tried to re-create it and failed. This was a second attempt at a fondant covered cake, and first time at coloring the fondant.

I was sneaky and stuck some “bones” in the foot. It’s anatomically correct – the tibia and fibula.

Not great, but yummier than a card. Chocolate Cake Recipe & Chocolate Butter Cream Icing Recipe. The cake was delicious, but too crumbly for staking and decorating purposes.

Update: Here is what the cake looked after it was cutup: 2013 02 Foot Cake (6)
I like how the bones just fell out it 😀
