Who Ya Gonna Call?

We all know that everything that's old becomes new again.  With the recent success of Ubisoft's Ghostbusters game for the Wii console, a new generation has been exposed to this great franchise!  I was fortunate enough to be asked to make a Ghostbusters cake for the son of one of my customer's.  She picked the base cake from another website and I used it as a jumping point.  Here is the finished product:

The top tier was covered in fondant with fondant buildings.  The bottom tier is covered in buttercream.  Staypuft and Slimer are hand modelled in gumpaste.  Slimer is covered in tinted piping gel to give him a "slimey" look.  The ghostbusters logo is an edible image super imposed on gumpaste and sprinkled with disco dust to give it that something extra!  The cake itself is vanilla bean and is filled with "Slimer green" buttercream.

More cakes coming up - the next few weeks are booked.  On the pipeline for my faithful blog followers is a review of Sharon Zambito's Back to Basics DVD as well as an interview with Jennifer Dontz.  If there are any tutorials or anything else you'd like to see on the blog, leave me a comment.

Until next time, Happy Caking!
