I'm here to present the most challenging cake that I've ever commissioned ----- The Kungfu Panda Cake. It's a three tiered cake topped with a huge Kungfu Panda and other masters figurines, including the Shifu, the crane, the snake and the tigeress.
I was sent a picture of similar cake done by a reknowned cake artist from Australia, Lorinda in fact. My mission is to replicate the cake exactly. It's a great challenge though I never like to copy others cakes. I could include all the figurines but I would twist the outlook of the cake such that it wouldn't look like the twin of the original cake. It's a way to show my respect to the creator too.
As the panda is quite huge and standing up on one leg, I needed to make sure it's steadily positioned. So, I tried to apply skill learned online from Planet Cake, carving styrofoam into the shape of the panda figure! Mom helped to carve it in fact as I was tied up with other task. Great job, mom!

Hey, here it is, the all mighty Kungfu Panda! How cool he is!
Mom and I were really excited with the result, so as the commissioner, :) Thanks for her trust and compliment! Really appreciate it.
