This Slugterra cake project was a very fun experience. It started when I received a visit from a family looking for a cake for one of their sons, namely Santiago, who is six years old.

All of the time his parents told me about their excitement to make a special birthday for Santiago based on his favorite cartoon, Slug Bajoterra. At the beginning I was a little worried because I had never heard of the cartoon or the characters.

I began to model Santiago’s favorite character, the hero of the cartoon, Shane. As time went on I enjoyed modeling each character with their fancy and cutie face expressions, and their spectacular colors and symbols.

The emotion Santiago showed when he saw his cake with all his little tiny friends on it was indescribable. He finally said, “It’s very cool! I don’t know which character I am going to eat first, but I am not going to eat Shane. He is my hero!”

The cake took me a lot of time to make, but I am happy for Santiago and the joy the cake brought him.
