it's a katamari!! like from katamari damacy!!


ok, here are the specs--solid cake made with this recipe, doubled (subbing in whole eggs and yolks to make it a yellow cake).


the icing is a buttercream frosting recipe, tripled.


the cupcakes were made from the basic cupcake recipe from clare crespo's hey, there cupcake.


it weights about five pounds (approx 2267 grams) and is approx a foot tall. (30 cm)


i was orignially going to use candy dough to sculpt a little prince and some cows to stick on the katamari, but i couldn't get the dough to work as well as i would've liked.


i can't wait to eat it!
