This cake was done for sonny dearest of a fellow forumer at M4M. Her kid is a Ben 10 fanatic, same like my Ah Girl. She is forever nagging about the Omnitrix and said how she wanted to transform into aliens. So I asked, 'Won't mommy be scared and run away from you?'. To that, she answered, 'No.. you're my mommy, you won't run away.' Well said my dear, well said. It is one career you can never send our resignation in.
The cake is a Chocolate Sponge cake with non dairy whipped cream and strawberries. For a Ben 10 fan, I think the ultimate gift is an Omnitrix. So instead of just a printed edible image, I threw in a Omnitrix watch.
The black portion is made of chocolate fondant, so it cuts down the necessity of using too much black colouring. It tasted quite good too.
It's easy to get a sample, I just asked Ah Girl. She did complained that I made her Omnitrix greasy. Okay, don't nag, I cleaned it up already. I am not very satisfied at the white stripes. I should have cut-and-joined. The cake was well received by the birthday boy and to the mommy, smiles on her kid's face is all that mattered.
Ah Girl couldn't really tell the 2 Omnitrix apart when I presented to her in a box, I had to pass her the toy. Last night while I was fiddling with the pictures, she has finally settled on her birthday cake. Looks like another Ben 10 cake is on the way.
