ZheYuan's Rory Lion Cake

rory lion cake

This is a very easy cake to make, and I've made it many many times, for my children and for children of special friends. It warms my heart that they liked it and that I have made them happy. This cake was for ZheYuan's 2nd birthday on 18/11, and he was put off by it at first. After a few minutes, the cutie was happily taking photos with it.

This is not my creation; I made the cake based on the recipe and picture in The Complete Guide To Cake Decorating, published by Merehurst Ltd, London. Because I'm concerned about their copyright, I won't be giving the how-to here.

Yes, those are the features of a dog. I used home-made sugarpaste/fondant.

Hi!i found your blog looking for a lion cake! yours is amazing! may i ask you if you use butter cream or cream to make the beard? tank you!

terri@adailyobsession said...

shade: hi, sorry, i just saw your question. i used royal icing. it's stiffer and holds up better in hot or cold weather. check my other post on rory lion here http://hungerhunger.blogspot.com/2008/11/how-to-make-rory-lion.html

Shade said...

terri, thank you very much! next time i will try with royal icing. I made the beard with butter cream.
here: http://www.bigshade.blogspot.com/2012/01/torta-leone-grauuuurrr.html you can see the cake!
unfortunately i'm not exactly a cake designer, but the child loved it!
