This is my entry for the third round of Link's Blacklist Project
. For those of you not familiar with it, it's a collaborative fan art project that focuses on the baddies of the Zelda franchise.
This time I chose to depict a deku scrub. I chose the mad scrub variant of them because I love the autumn-ish colours of this type. There's well over 100 sugar leaves in the piece. Each was hand cut, thinned, embossed and then painted with powdered food colouring. Inside is almond butter cake, covered in chocolate ganache.
This is my first time incorporating LED lights into a cake. For anyone who has played Majora’s Mask, you’ll remember the opening sequence where Link is turned into a Deku. That scene with all the mad scrubs closing in around link and the final shot of the giant deku chasing him down is the most prominent scene in my mind. Those glowing eyes in the dark is what I think of when I think of Mad Scrubs, so I wanted to make this guy glow. I set LED lights deep into the cake and covered them with sugar glass.More info and photos at my blog
