'Woman Jumping Out of a Cake' Cake

7" Lemon cake filled with lemon curd bc and 5" chocolate cake filled with ganache, covered in chocolate fondant. The figure on top is modelled from fondant and handpainted.

 

This was for a 40th birthday, for a lady who likes other ladies! The girl jumping out the cake is meant to be her dream woman - a cross between Angelina Jolie and a 1940's pin up girl.

 

I'm so pleased with how she turned out though. I think it's my favourite thing I've ever made and I didn't want to give it away lol.... and the birthday girl refused to cut it after all that!

 

It was a last minute cake & I was up till the very wee hours over the weekend doing this, and it's the reason I had to pull out of the Sweet Treats Cookie Competition. Thanks to Milen@ for her 'bursting out the cake' technique, and Aine2 for her inspiration.
