As I'm writing this, the song "Totoro, totoro" rings in my head! I’m a huge fan of Japanese anime thus was really happy when I got a request for Totoro! It's been my dream to make Naruto or One Piece hehe. He wanted not one but all 3 Totoro for his wife and requested for standing configuration (else I wouldn’t be so adventurous!). So here is my valiant attempt =).
The big Totoro is made of charcoal and matcha chiffon cake from an oval bowl, the medium and chibi Totoro from chiffon cake in an egg shell and cake pop respectively. The base cake is pandan chiffon cake on top with blue pea flowers/vanilla chiffon cake below. I was trying to recreate Totoro sitting on a cluster of trees.
Thank God it was well-received! The wife almost couldn’t bear to cut it! =)
With lots of love,
