I was asked to create a Call of Duty cake. I was shown a few pictures of what they wanted and tried to put my own little stamp on the cake.
This single tier cake was a vanilla sponge filled with vanilla buttercream and strawberry jam. The cake was then covered in a black fondant icing.
I wanted the cake to include different elements from the game. I used rice krispies to create the grenade shape, I then covered this with a buttercream and pushed fondant icing onto the grenade creating indents. The dog tags were made from fondant icing and then I used edible silver balls to make the chain. I wanted the board of the cake to look like it was sand. I managed to create this by blending digestive biscuit in a food processor and attaching to the board with a light coating of buttercream. I used fondant to cut out all the lettering from a stencil I had made of the Call of Duty font.
