This cake was for a 3rd birthday for a girl who loves all things Egypt, especially the Sphinx.
This is where it began with the cake board which is covered with fondant and handcarved with hieroglyphics. Well, not real hieroglyphics, I made this up. Then dusted with tan and grey edible dust to look ancient.
This is where it all began.... Soon this would become the Sphinx.
Here's what the cake looked like all carved up and ready to be iced with buttercream.
The cake is covered in fondant and where I started to get some of the textures on the sides of the cake.
The final details were to paint the headdress of the Sphinx, similar to a toy that the little girl had, and a bit more hieroglyphics. What a fun cake - hope you enjoyed the photos!
