I was asked to make several cakes over the past two weeks for a friend... she has two children with birthdays a week apart, and a 3rd family member that they have a joint party with. So needless to say I've been a busy baker! I will share all of the cakes, but first up is this House of Anubis cake!
The name "Emma" mimics the logo for the show with the eye symbol for the "A". I added a gumpaste locket, called the "Eye of Horus" that is used in the show... and a rice cereal treat "Book of Isis" that was used in at least one episode, but they regularly do research in "old" books to solve their mysteries. The side of the cake is stenciled to represent the "old-fashioned" decor of the boarding house where the show takes place, also reminiscent of the grey on grey damask pattern that is the background for the shows website... and I piped on some black trees (and added some texture with a paint brush) to represent the "spooky" forest that surrounds the boarding school- as well as the shadowy trees on the background of the show's website.
It was difficult to come up with this cake design, but I am thrilled with the end result! Thanks for looking!
Happy Caking :)
