Coolest Invader Zim Cake
It seems there is a popular character on the web called GIR. He is a robot with Vadar Zim (?) and he dresses up in a green dog suit with a big zipper up the front when he visits earth so he doesn't scare the population. My sister thinks he is wonderful. Me?!
So I made her this Invader Zim cake for her birthday. It is GIR jumping out of a turkey. Fans will know exactly what is going on.
To make this cake I baked a fruit cake (but any firm cake would do) in a half ball tin. Then I cut the two sides off so that there was a nice 'turkey' shape. I then cut the ends off the two side pieces. So I was left with the large middle piece for the body - two smaller pieces for the legs and four even smaller pieces which became potatoes.
I covered the cakes in rolled fondant. The turkey body was first covered with white fondant and then a second cover of pink fondant....
