Stencil cake

And another cake photo. I found this in my cake photo folder and I quite like it (I made this cake loooong ago).
It is a hazelnut cake a chocolate stencil of Connor Oberst, the singer of the band Bright Eyes.
For the stencil I printed the image, transferred it to baking paper and then used a scalpel to cut a stencil out of the baking paper. As far as I remember, I used a few drops of water to loosely stick it to the iced cake and then painted the cutouts with dark chocolate.

Tetris cake

And another birthday cake for a housemate:
Tetris cake!


The tape strips mark the arena, our housemate had to play it before the cake was eaten!

Nyan cat cake

Right, I really need to catch up. I have made so many cakes since the last post and I even managed to get them from the camera to the computer (generally photos stay on my camera for a while until they make it into the computer). So why are there no photos of cakes then you might ask?
Well. I actually have prepared some cakey posts (by uploading the pictures and adding them), but they are lacking witty descriptions. Since no witty descriptions have magically appeared since the last post (which was in August...), I have now decided to just post them. I am sure most of you are here for the pictures anyway. You are probably not even reading this but instead drooling over the finally posted cake pictures.

One of my housemates loves internet-cat-memes. A particularly nice one is nyancat.
So for his birthday I made a nyancat cake with help of another housemate.


The body is made out of normal cake mixture and filled with custard buttercream and then coated with marzipan. The legs and head are chocolate cake with chocolate custard buttercream iced with dark chocolate. The tail is made of A LOT of biscuit.
