The younger son asked for a birthday cake in the form of your favorite character from the movie "Despicable me".
To make this cake I used a cake from a recipe http://www.povarenok .ru/recipes/show/813 92/. The amount of ingredients I reduced 2 times.
To speed up the process of baking foil I made 2 shape with a diameter of 16 cm.
While the cakes bake, you can prepare the cream. I have custard: 8 egg yolks, 2 dessert spoons of flour
Stir well, pour 0.5 liters of cold cream (10% fat)
Put in a water bath. Of course, this cream is faster to cook not in the bath, but makes me feel good - can always be distracted by the phone, children, etc. the Finished cream is cooled, add 250 g of softened butter and whisk.
Begin to collect the cake. For fixing I use a regular wooden skewers, string the cakes on top of each other like a pyramid, promazyvaya cream. The entire structure, I wrapped with cling film and put into the fridge to solidify.
That's what happened. Here I only used 8 cakes - ninth will be spent on a mini-cake.
Applied to the entire surface of the butter cream ( the cream is gone less), put into the fridge.
Yellow mastic roll out a round ( with my size about 30 cm). We need to circle reaches to about the place where you want to be the middle of the eye.
Cut out the rectangle, wrap the figure. The joint will be hidden under the straps points, much line it's not necessary. It is very nice in this heat, how should we - with working AC in the next room, in the kitchen I have 28 degrees - butter cream melts instantly.
Else we need two top handles - rolls 2 "sausages" and leave to dry. The remnants of the yellow mastic ( just 350g), I painted in grey and cut out glasses, left out to dry
"Sew" pants - on the edge of the blue mastic I walked with a fork, simulating the seam on the fabric.
Applied to the figure, so that the blue color is slightly went to yellow.
Attach the handle, I attached a toothpick and framed cups.
Cut out the straps and close their place of attachment of the handles.
White mastic cut out the eyes, make them the pupils.
Make buttons: with a toothpick bore holes and insert the "strings" of blue mastic.
Glue buttons on the straps. I even made a pocket.
Black mastic roll out a strap for glasses and they close the joint.
Cut out the emblem and mounts for straps.
Now proceed to the mini-cake. The ninth cake cut into triangles and coat them with cream, alignment, wrap the mastic.
Brings beauty: make hairstyle and don't forget about the mouth. The cake is ready, left to wait for the morning to give it a birthday.
