Jacob Black Twilight wolf cake by Dragonsanddaffodils Jacob Black Twilight wolf cake by Dragonsanddaffodils
"the silence outside the tent was ripped apart by an earsplitting howl of pain. The sound ricocheted off the bare rock face of the mountain and filled the air so that it seared from every direction.
The howl tore through my mind like a tornado, both strange and familiar. Strange because I'd never heard such a tortured cry before. Familiar because I knew the voice at once----- I recognized the sound and understood the meaning as perfectly as if I'd uttered it myself. It made no difference that Jacob was not human when he cried out. I needed no translation.
Jacob was close. Jacob had heard every word we'd said. Jacob was in agony"

Eclipse - Stephenie Meyer

Matthews main birthday cake for his party with his friends

The russet brown wolf that is Jacob Black.

Happy birthday again Matthew! :D

About the cake

It is carved from a rich chocolate cake covered in white sugarpaste/rolled fondant, all in one piece.

The I shaped the icing surface with fingers, snipping the larger sections of fur with small sharp scissors, and the finer fur by slicing with a knife.

The colours were all dusted on. Gradually starting with cream, then gradually building up the brown colours using chestnut, brown, chocolate, nutkin brown, skintone and then finally by adding black.

I couldn't resist addding a set of teeth with white sugarpaste and a cute red tongue (also from sugarpaste) and used some clear piping gel to give the wetness inside the mouth.

Whole thing took about 2 hours from turning the cake out of the tin to putting a ribbon on the board.

*Edit*

Matthew took the head section of the cake to school for the rest of his friends and I can honestly say, I have never been accosted in the playground like that before! Children and teachers were caming to me and saying that they had a piece of the cake and that it was delicious and that it was so lifelike.

Matthews chest inflated with pride! I am so pleased I did it now! :D :boogie: I had children shouting accross the yard at me how amazing they thought the cake was, that I was the best cake maker in the world (he really puffed up at that one! ) and one boy I had never seen before delightedly shouted at me that the teeth were delicious! :laughing:

THIS is the best part of being a cake maker, knowing that the person the cake was for is actually so pleased with it, that they are proud of it!
