UFC Chocolate Cake

UFC Chocolate Cake

Why a UFC Cake? Someone called me at 3pm and needed a cake last minute for her husband by 6pm!

Here's what I came up with. He loves UFC, so a simple chocolate cake (Michelle's recipe of course) and Michelle's chocolate buttercream with ganache. I happened to have some left over from another cake in the fridge... what do yah know!!

I made the gloves by printing off a picture from the internet, and cutting it out. I then cut the black base shape, and added more black and red to make it 3D. I used a small fondant wheel tool (I don't know the name for it) and rolled it on the outer edges to make the glove look like it was sewn.

I used white food colouring (love this stuff for details!!) and black food colouring with vodka to paint the details. She was very pleased and so was he!

From the editor:

Don't you love those last minute requests? Great job Lucie. I think the wheel you're referring to is this Wilton Cutter Embosser tool. I have one and I love mine for adding stitching detail to all kinds of decorations.

Thanks for sharing.
