My son is a huge fan of Ben-10 from cartoon network. I have been baking his birthday cakes for 7 years and watch a lot of food network, and live by WWDD- what would Duff do?-. So this Ben 10 cake is the arm of Ben and his latest omnitrex.
The arm pan was the Wilton dinosaur, carved down to arm width and the omnitrex is one-half of a ball with the top cut off. I layered “bones” of fondant and covered the cake with a mix of tan and light brown fondant, that was highlighted with a light mix of vodka and black/brown paste food coloring.
The Omnitrex detailing is black fondant and hand-tinted gray fondant. The glowing green was achieved with Wilton green glitter gel. Overall, one of my favorite cakes and only took about 45 minutes to decorate start to finish.
