  4. In fact, how do you even colour the fondant jet black? Is there such thing as black food colouring, as I've never come across any. Though I'm pretty sure there is, how would you make white fondant jet black instead of dark grey?

  5. Hi Lyebak, you can buy black fondant, and you can buy black gel colouring – but as you said it is hard to make white fondnat black and not grey. Even when only colouring a small amount of fondant you have to use so much gel colour that it gets sticky. You would need to find black powder colour and lots of it.

  6. Hi Lyebak, Either use the black gel colour with the white fondant or if you have purchased black fondant mix some black fondant with white fondant to make grey.

  7. Just wondering something. I do cakes for my boys at home, but I would like to eventually do cakes for other people out of my home. Not any kind of big business or anything, just something small. Is it legal for me to do character cakes for others? I have just heard so many different opinions about that. So I was wondering what you thought. Thanx

  8. Hi A Hawk, I do cakes fo my boys so have not looked into that. Most companies that I have seen do character cakes because that is what kids are asking for. To be honest if your party is themed that way that is what most of the gifts are themed too, so it would be unusual for a company to follow up on. But having said that disney apparently once took a daycare centre to court for having disney characters painted on their walls, another company came and painted their characters up for free.

  9. This is excellent, I was imagining how difficult it would be to make a decent likeness, but this looks doable for a relative novice. I agree with Sabiha about the pupil size, but otherwise, excellent πŸ™‚

  10. Hi! I want to make this cake for my daughters birthday and was wondering, is this face to heavy for the front of the cake, or would it be best on top?

  11. Thanks! I just tried making it and it went really well following your video πŸ™‚ My only problem is that my fondant instead of being grey turned kinda violet color. I just added some black wilton icing color to the white fondant. How can I get the light grey color?

  15. Thank you so very much for such a basic, yet professional looking tutorial. I'm a beginner and I don't have the money I would need to purchase a cake like this so your tutorial means my son will get his "choo choo" birthday cake that won't embarrass me to serve at his party!
