Totoro cake

My daughter loves Totoro! Actually everyone in my family does and that includes me. :P I made this cake for her 5th birthday. Even though sweets are not my cup of tea I managed to pull it off..  >_< 

This was my first time working with fondant. I know what Totoro looks like and know the story very well but I had to do my research a little bit on how to cover a cake with fondant and how to adding the colour etc.

I bought a couple of cake decoration tools like leaf moulds and flowers moulds.

I tried to make soot sprites but it didn't come out as I wished... they look exactly like them anyway - lol

I fried angle hair spaghetti to create a wooden stick in the the wood.

Luckily I didn't have to make the cake. I called my cake specialist friend and asked her to make butter cake for me. It works really well with fondant. All of the guests at the party enjoyed the cake very much!
