Grug Cake by cakecrumbs Grug Cake by cakecrumbs
This is a cake I made for a kid's birthday party. Grug is a character from a series of Australian illustrated children's books by Ted Prior.

Cake is 4 mudcakes stacked, carved, then covered in whipped chocolate ganache and decorated with fondant. Grug is a furry haystack-looking creature and I wanted to make him really fuzzy, so I used a sugar gun to pipe strands of fondant which I then attached to the cake. Very time consuming work, but I think the effect was worth it

Very well done. To me he looks like he could come from a book series I enjoyed as a child; the Serendipity books.

He looks perfect! Loved this little dude as a kid, such a simple series of books, but oh so cute :)

Outstanding work and I will admit I wasn't sure what it was at first.

Mudcake is like a piece of very chocolate-y heaven. Chocolate cake, only better... You should really try it. Seriously.
