Today I'm sharing a Godzilla cake with you! I have to admit - I don't know a lot about the Godzilla movies, but my customer provided the toys (characters) and a few ideas and this is what I came up with!
She didn't really need more than 20 servings, so I started with a 9x13 sheet cake. She mentioned the city and the ocean, so I thought it would be fun to do half the cake sharp with fondant (the city) and the other half all buttercream for the ocean.
I was pretty happy with how it turned out!
I made the buildings from rice cereal treats cut into rectangular cubes. I just cut out panels of fondant and "glued" them to the buildings with a little buttercream. I pushed lollipop sticks into the bottom and then pushed them into the cake.
I used my ribbon cutter to do the "highway" from Satin Ice Black fondant and then I cut all of the letters from Satin Ice Red fondant. The "Happy Birthday" was done with the Fox Run letter cutters and "Eli" was cut using these 1.5" alphabet cookie cutters.
As I said earlier, Eli's mom supplied the little characters for me to put on the cake, so I had one crawling out of the ocean and the others "in the city".
After making the buildings and letting them harden overnight, the rest came together pretty easily. Eli and his mom loved it and that's what matters most!
What do you think about the half and half look (fondant/buttercream)? Do you have any questions about this cake? I love to hear from readers so leave me a comment if you have a question or thoughts about this cake!
