This is a doughnut cake with Homer Simpson. I just made this cake for a big fan of Homer Simpson. And, while I was very pleased with how the stacked donuts turned out, I wasn't very happy with how Homer turned out.
In fact, I did take some pictures to show you how I made Homer. But, since I was so disappointed I dropped the thought of making this post.
Incidentally, I was also on the guest list and amazingly when we walked into the restaurant with the cake, everybody was so excited to see Homer! In fact, in the very first 5 minutes, I had the waitress come to me with guest requests for my business cards. Unfortunately, I had only six cards with me. And, you can guess what happened next, Homer and his doughnuts were having a photo session.
The bottom 9" round cake is my Devils Food chocolate cake with chocolate mousse. And, the top doughnuts 4" round cake is my sponge cake recipe with meringue buttercream.
And, the whole cake is covered in Meringue Buttercream and my Homemade Fondant/Sugar Paste.
How to make fondant Homer Simpson
So, here are a few pictures of my gum paste Homer Simpson in the making. In all, I think the body came out quite nice. However, I should have re-done the head. But, in my defense, I was just too tired and mentally exhausted that day to realize it.
Nevertheless, I think the collages are self-explanatory. And, if you still have any questions please feel free to ask me.
Start with a ball, roll a sausage, and start tapering both ends until you reach this shape. Then, fold the two ends in and dig into the pant top to accommodate the belly. Next, stick two cocktail sticks into the bottom to hold the shoes.
