The Golden Pikachu

Kiddo had a birthday and she wanted a Pokemon themed one so I decided to try my hand at making a Pikachu cake.  Needless to say, my 'sculpting' skills leave a lot to be desired.  I'd practice more but each cake I make basically kills my back since I'd be standing the whole time.  Believe me I tried doing this sitting down but it just doesn't work.  Back to the cake though, I wanted to try my hand at airbrushing some shadows but I didn't really read the labels of the airbrush colors so what I thought was brown was actually copper. Duh.  I tried fixing it but the yellow didn't take and my back was already killing me so I decided to just leave it since Kiddo said she liked it.  He looks like one of those lucky cats in oriental stores but hey, Kiddo was happy. I was happy.

He is all edible except for the hat that I added to make his head less flat.  Like I said, my sculpting skills leave a lot to be desired. >.< Inside are alternating layers of chocolate cake and vanilla flavored cake with Swiss meringue buttercream filling and frosting.
