I made this Elvis Cake for a 65th birthday. Elvis is hand made completely made out of fondant so he is totally edible! The record on the top of the cake is the favourite song of the birthday boy. The cake is a 2 tier cake made out of chocolate cake, and filled and covered with chocolate ganache. I make my chocolate ganache with heavy cream and a dark Belgian chocolate. The letters are hand carved and decorated with silver balls all placed with tweezers for precision. Elvis’ suit is hand painted with an edible glitter paint and embellished with two different sizes of silver balls.
I really enjoyed making this cake and it is one of my favourite cakes. I have had an overwhelming response on Facebook about this cake. Pictures have been shared all over the world from England to Canada to Australia.
