Totoro and friends Chiffon Cake!

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,


  1. Hi Susanne this is amazing! I can just imagine the detail work you put in to ensure all the different hues & shades go well together. Was wondering how do you fill the chiffon pan to create the curve of the trees against the sky. It'll be awesome if you can share :) Many thanks in advance!

    1. Oops.. Sorry I missed your message. Just need to drop pandan batter to form humps then fill with blue batter gently. Thanks.
