A while ago, I wrote a random post on different cakes that I had made over the years. I really enjoy baking and wondered if I could combine my hobbies of baking and 40k. I decided to have a go at an ambitious project of making a Rhino in cake form. So, this weekend I decided to give it a go as I had bought the icing fondant a while back and it was quickly going out of date. Below are the photos of my weekend baking.
|What I am aiming for (kind of).|
The cake is a chocolate sponge with chocolate icing (from the Great British Bake Off book).
|The basics are made.|
|The sponge is cut to size.|
|Icing the Chassis.|
|Side of the Chassis.|
|First layer of icing.|
|Adding the front detail.|
|Rear hatch complete.|
|For tactical marines.|
|Adding detail to the side.|
|Ultramarines symbol added.|
|The finished vehicle.|
|I added little rivets (round cake toppings) with some tweezers.|
|Size comparison with one of my White Scars Rhinos.|
Hope you liked it, I'll let you know how it tastes when I get round to eating it (hopefully not all by myself!).
