Tokyo Ghoul Cake!


When I was a kid (I’m only 25 and still feel like I’m 10) anime was a huge part of my life. Sailor Moon was my first love, then came Gundam Wing, Dragon Ball Z, Inuyasha, and so many more. I may or may not own all the seasons of Sailor moon, and I may or may not throw it on whenever I’m sick for some moon crystal power love. That said, I’m not hip to Toyko Ghoul. I hadnt heard of it before I was asked to make it into a cake, but it didnt take long for me to delve into the depths of crunchyroll and watch a few episodes.I’m really glad I did because its a really awesome anime that has some very mature themes.

Cakes that revolve around people are always tough for me. Sculpting faces is not my forte, but I did my best with this one and am happy with how it turned out. It got a nod from the young man receiving it, so I’m pretty sure that translated into approval. The background was simply some red food coloring I had mixed with a bit of vodka, which I then flung onto the cake to create this blood spattered pattern. I used pictures of the main character in toy form as my muse for the figurines and added a bit of tylose powder to my fondant to sculpt them.
