CSI Cake

I've finished my GCSEs! I did my last one yesterday morning and instead of celebrating by getting drunk (which is the apparent 'norm' for people my age) I spent all day on a cake commission. It was for my friend's little sister and she had a CSI themed party today. This cake was so much fun, especially the blood around the victim's body trace! For that and the magnifying 'glass', I boiled up some sugar to hard ball stage and added food dye. The photos don't really show it but there is a piped 'fingerprint' under the magnifying glass. Everything on this cake is edible. The black fondant looks quite grubby, photos were taken before I did a clean up. The magnifying 'glass' has small bubbles in it so it's not fantastically clear.
Enjoy!
P.S. I was so tempted to keep the mini forensic scientist for myself! He's so cute, look at his little face!

  1. That is very cool. Great idea using the sugar for the blood. I would've just used icing but this looks heaps more realistic.

  3. Looks wonderful! I am just wondering....what happened to your cool Lego man cake?? I was searching through your old blog posts and I can't find it anymore. My little brother's Birthday party is coming up, and your Lego cake was a big hit with him!

  4. Thank you for all the lovely feedback. Acacia, I'm afraid I have never done a Lego cake. I think you have me confused with another blog. I hope you find what you were looking for and that he has a good birthday. And I shall put a Lego cake on my 'to do list'!
