I was asked to make a gorilla themed cake for a little girl who loves the movie "Mighty Joe Young:". I think my rendition was spot on by the look on the birthday girl's face. The gorilla is made of rice cereal and covered in modeling chocolate. The "hair" is modeling chocolate mixed with a bit of fondant to make it more flexible. The tree trunk is a mixture of modeling chocolate and peanut butter flavored candy clay. The cake itself was a traditional vanilla layered with a bit of raspberry jam and covered in American buttercream.
