Ben 10 Cake And Alien Cakes

This cake was my first ever attempt at cake making. My son is a big BEN 10 fan and looking at the prices of shop bought cakes I decided I could do just as good a job for half the price...

I decided to make a cake in the figure of Ben 10. This was a 20-inch figure which consisted of chocolate sponge cake with a chocolate buttercream filling.

After shaping the cake into my Ben 10 figure, I covered the cake in fondant icing or frosting which was coloured in the appropiate colours, like green for the pants, white for the T-shirt, etc.

I then finished the final touches with a paint brush and liqourice flavoring.

As the cake was taken to my son's school I decided to make 30 cupcakes or fairycakes so each of his school friends could enjoy it too. On top of the cupcakes I added a face of an alien made from fondant icing which was couloured in either red or yellow and finished with black liquorice colouring.

The alien heads were four arms and heat blast as these are my son's two favourite alien characters from BEN 10.

The best thing about this cake making experience was the look on my son's face and all his class mates when the cake was brought out to him by his teacher...

I am one very happy and proud DAD!
