This is the b-day cake I made for Catlin's Birthday (Blake's Mom)on July 19th, 2003. She absolutely loves Felix the Cat and has a large collection of Felix the Cat stuff. So, I thought it fitting to make her a Felix and Catlin birthday cake. The bottom layer of cake is dark chocolate while the top layer is lemon with some red candy flakes that melt in the batter to give it the swirl affect. I was looking for some contrast in the cake itself to play off the highly contrasting colors of the entire Felix theme. The cake filling is a duo of whipped ganache and raspberry preserves. The main icing is buttercream in two lovely shades of blue. The decorations are color flow, which is just powdered sugar, water, and meringue. Color flow dries very hard and gives the perfect cartoon effect.
