Secret Agent Cake

It can’t be helped.  I’m referring to this, being yet another cake entry.  Would you look at that!  Three in a row!  If I keep this up, I should probably already look into the possibility of catalog printing . Maybe not. The third quarter of the year just happens to be when I get the most “practice”.  Promise, my next entry won’t be about cakes.  Fair enough?  It’s a deal then!

Last month, I made a Secret Agent Cake for the 8th birthday of the son of good friends of ours.  He’s into spy gadgets, really.  But I took the easy way out, opting to make a cake where the “user” of the spy gadgets is the star.  Hee hee. :P  Allow me to present to you, Agent 008…

This is  Chocolate Cake filled with Chocolate Frosting and Marshmallows.  I have to say, hubby loved this cake. ;)  It’s just too bad the birthday boy has yet to be introduced to the wonderful spy that is James Bond. I really should have asked first.  Come to think of it, he might be a tad too young for 007 movies. :D

The cake topper was a lot of fun to make!  I love how I dressed this little man.  The hair could use a little more work, that much I’m willing to admit,  but overall, I was pleased.  The bomb was just begging to be lit. ;)

I made this cake on the same day as the Yogi Cake.  To save time, I used red and black jelly beans as decorative accents.  Candies are my best friends!

I could really use a martini now…shaken, not stirred. ;)

Cheers y’all!

    I love this cake and I was thinking of making one like this for my sons birthday but can not figure out how to make the little spy guy you made. Do you have any helpful tips? I would appreciate it!

    Hi Amber! I’m sorry it took me a while to reply. The fondant spy figure is made up of 6 “main” parts: the head, the body, the two legs and the two arms. Roll a ball of fondant for the head. Roll 4 log-like pieces for the arms and legs. And form a rectangular sort of shape for the body. I insert a stick of spaghetti into the legs and arms to help keep their log-like shape and to help attach the arms, legs and head to the body. You may use a toothpick but as much as possible, I like to use edible elements…even if they’re uncooked. Hee hee. The rest of the details, you just add after you’ve assembled the figure: collar, buttons, the part of the inner shirt that sticks out, shoes, etc. That’s about it. I hope I’ve helped you in some way. :)
