Cake - Roy Mustang by Lutra-Gem Cake - Roy Mustang by Lutra-Gem
Minor Edit: I would like to have to thank each and every one of you for each and every :+fav: on these cakes. But I do not have the time - I've just started university, and I'm fortunate enough for these to have become extremely popular. I cannot spend all my time clearing out the favourites! So please, accept my heartfelt thanks NOW. They wouldn't be doing so well without you. I wouldn't have the DD without you. So thank you.

Replies to comments made on my deviations will go on as normal. I like talking to you guys!

Now back to my main comments.

BECAUSE HE IS SO FREAKING AWESOME. :heart:

This cake is dedicated to Travis Willingham, *dragonnova and my friend Immy, with whom I first cosplayed. Travis should be obvious, Dragon will know why, and Immy will just appreciate this.

Even I had no idea how amazing this would come out with the candles on it.

SIX. HOURS. AND FIFTEEN MINUTES.

BUT SO, SO WORTH IT.

Chocolate on chocolate fudge cake. I am yet to taste any, I was so stuffed after my party that I thought I'd be sick if I had more.

If you're interested in the technique I made a tutorial which can be found here: [link] I hope that's useful!

I now suspect delicious cakes were how they taught gluttony to nom on people...

Seriously though, great job!

Hahah, thanks! My mum taught me how to do it; I don't know how widely used it is, but I suspect there are others who use it and far more advanced techniques.

I wouldn't be surprised! Haha. You did a fantastic job on this cake; I would pay a lot of money for it to have it on my table! xD Except... It would be too much of a masterpiece to even eat. Love how you changed the colors of chocolate to match the photo too.

I always insist that we make them last as long as possible, so the cakes end up very strange shapes. If you're interested in the technique, I made a tutorial which can be found here: [link] while the video tutorial is here: [link] I hope that's useful!

Yeah, I checked out your tutorial! :) I don't think I'll ever do it since I can't even bake well, haha. It's cool that your family does it though.

I actually get my mum to make the cakes and the fudge icing; I can do a bit of baking, but she's the master. I just do the decoration!
