Wailord Birthday Cake

Wailord Pokemon Birthday Cake

My 10-year old friend Nicholas requested a Wailord birthday cake.  For those of you not acquainted with the Pokemon, they are cute, imaginary animal-like creatures that can battle and evolve into various stages.  Wailord is a whale-like Pokemon.
For this cake, I fashioned Wailord of blue and white fondant.  I let him dry several days.  His eyes were drawn in with an edible ink pen.  I made a 8-inch round cake.  After I leveled the cakes I saved a small round piece for the dome in the middle.  Supporting triangles with rolled paper towel.For the covering of the cake, I colored fondant in two shades of blue and twisted them with a piece of white fondant to create the swirl pattern before rolling the fondant out.
With the extra fondant I had after trimming the bottom, I cut some triangles which I attached to the cake, and bent them outward, supporting them with rolled up pieces of paper towel.  I also cut out the “waves” using a leaf cutter.  Plastic support rod inserted into the middle of the cake
One last trick to mention, Wailord was a little bit heavy, being made of solid fondant, so I inserted a plastic support in the middle of the cake and attached him using royal icing, just to make him a little more secure.  (I happened to be making royal icing for another project…post to come…but if I hadn’t, I would have used some fondant “glue” made from adding a little bit of water to some fondant.)Happy Birthday Nicholas!Happy Birthday, Nicholas!
