We got a request for a peanut butter cup cake, it didn’t need to be huge, the shape and flavour were the important bits.
We umm-ed and ahh-ed over trying to make a peanut butter flavoured cake but finally settled on a chocolate cake with a peanut butter flavoured icing.
The cake had some mild carving to give it it’s distinctive shape.
Fondant or buttercream was of course not going to do the trick so we covered the cake with milk modelling chocolate to replicate the chocolate coating.
As a finishing touch we made a wrapper for it out of, well, wrapping paper. Painting it with tempera paint in a logo very reminiscent to a famous brand but using the recipient’s name instead.
Reviews were glowing, and despite being a chocolate cake the flavour was spot-on. Hooray for peanut butter and chocolate!
