Thoughts on an axolotl cake
No, not a cake made out of axolotls. I've developed a bit of a reputation with my friends for doing crazy birthday cakes over the years and my friend Sarah has really thrown down the gauntlet for me this time. She has requested an axolotl cake. Now I reckon the body and head (made out of white chocolate mudcake) will be easy... but those damn gills! If at all possible, I want to make them out of something edible. I'm thinking perhaps chocolate, or maybe some type of icing... but I'm not so good with modelling icing: it always wants to crack into 1000 pieces. Maybe this will just have to be the time to perfect that. Either way, Sarah has given me a damn good challenge.
