Charlie Chaplin Cake!

My husbands sister adores Charlie Chaplin! She knows all about him and can watch like 2 seconds of one of his movies and tell you which one it is, the year it was made and all sorts of other facts! So for her birthday I had to do her a Charlie Chaplin cake.

I decided straight away that I would make it look classic in just black and white, and as she was having a party I knew it needed to be big. So I started with a 12" square cake (which I filled with buttercream) and covered it with white sugarpaste.

Then I printed off a picture of Charlie, and stuck it onto cardboard. I rolled out some black sugarpaste and then, using my template, cut out the pieces. 

Then I put them onto the top of the cake, and finished off the other details (hair, face and cane!) with black icing. I was pretty happy with the results, and so was my husbands sister! In fact, she didn't want to eat it! Lol!
