'Cat Kissing Fish' Chiffon Cake

Does it look like the cat on land is kissing the fish in the water? 🐈🐟😚 My humble attempt at an optical illusion chiffon cake, inspired by the "cat kissing fish" video and drawings a while back. I also drew inspiration from the very talented cake artist Elena gnut on instagram. Mine is the sweet cartoon version hehe. I also changed to colour scheme to sweet pastels as I pictured a very sweet scene of the cat and fish making friends.

I used the patterning technique from my latest book "Deco Chiffon Cake Basics" for drawing on the fish in the water, the waves and the water. Briefly this involves prebaking the patterns for 2 min before the rest of the batter is added. The "cat" is made from 2 round cakes, similar to the "Panda Chiffon Cake" below in "Deco Chiffon Cake Basics". I made this cake few months back actually. Those who are close to me know that I am very busy on the family side recently, so posting my backlogs.

Hope this sweet cake made you smile! The video is an interesting watch if you have the time!

With lots of love,

Other fun patterns can be found in the older books:


  1. This is the most adorable cake. I've seen one other that did this scene. Equally as cute. I'm going to attemp my version of it next week (:
