Paw Patrol 'Chase' Chiffon Cake


This is my humble attempt at a Paw Patrol 'Chase' Chiffon Cake for a dear mummy friend some time back! Thank God it was well-received and everyone said it looked like stuffed toy! For those who are not familiar, 'Chase' is the name of a police dog in the cartoon Paw Patrol. Very cute cartoon with pups sliding down a long slide round the tower each time there's a rescue mission.

For the base cake, I used the same recipe as my previous Chocolate-Orange Giraffe Chiffon Cake, except that I piped the orange batter on one side only to form the face. For the top cake, I used the same recipe as my previous Minions chiffon cake, with blue forming 2/3 and yellow 1/3 instead.

The ears were cut from excess chocolate batter baked as sheet cake - make 2 cuts using the same circle cutter. The nose was cut from a round cake pop baked in 5-cm cake pop mold (slice off 3 sides). Other details eg eyes were also cut from sheet cakes; you can also pipe them on using melted chocolate. I used melted marshmallows as glue (pop a few marshmallows with a sprinkle of water and microwave for 30 sec). I also used a Paw patrol badge cookie cutter from JB cookie cutters.

With lots of love,
Susanne

  1. Another awesome bake!!! *Super Love*
    I've a few queries which I'll be most grateful if you could please advise:
    A. You piped the orange batter (for the face) and bake it before pouring the rest of the batter?
    B. Is the pan placed upright in the oven when baking the orange batter (for the face)? Won't the orange batter slide down?
    C. Are the eyes made of chiffon sheets stacked on top of another (white-brown-black-white), or are they piped and baked as 1 chiffon sheet?
    Sorry for the trouble and thank you in advance.
