I made this Jim Morrison cake for my mom’s 50th birthday. I figured it would be easier with fondant but we both hate the flavor of it, so I decided to make it with couverture chocolate with which I had no experience whatsoever. It wasn’t as tough as I had expected, just made a stencil out of cardboard and bought one of those food coloring sprays, covered the cake with white chocolate and proceed to paint, that was it.

I hurried a bit through the process since I was running out of time, now I know it is very very important to let the chocolate harden before placing the stencil and just assuming it won’t stick to the stencil, believe me, it will. Besides that it was very simple. It’s a very plain cake but I think it didn’t turn out that bad and she just loved it, she even cried a little.
