Kermit the Frog cake

Kermit the frog birthday cake! This is the cake I made for my niece's 6th birthday. She had a Muppets-themed birthday party. I've never made a tall 3D character cake like this before, and although I knew it would challenge me, I had no idea how much! Let's just say I was VERY pleased when he was finished!!! :)

 

Given it was a child's birthday party, the cake was made using chocolate cake (ie not mud cake) and milk chocolate ganache (not dark, which I would have preferred to use!)

 

All of his body and most of his head are cake. The small chin area was carved from styrofoam. He was scuplted from 4 cakes and was about 14 inches tall! Kermit was airbrushed all over for that real 'Kermit green'! :)
