Hellooo Readers :D
-Phew- Finally, today’s tutorial will be a Tenorikuma Cake. Now, the steps for this is pretty much the same as the Rilakkuma cake.
This was a gift for my friend’s birthday, and construction was fairly straight forward.
So let’s go !
- Pastel (Brown – or whatever ‘sauce’ you want on your cake)
- Light yellow + white clay ( Sponge cake part)
- Pale green ( Filling – this can also be whatever colour you want it to be)
- Brown + Black + Nutmeg (Ears)
- Red ( for the heart)
- Butterscotch + Lemon drop ( The main colour)
- Scrap clay
- Any other decorations you want to include
- Mix the colours together.
- This is sketch I drew to help me get the base shape of the cake.
- Shape the foil
- Cut out a piece of it.
- Cover the foil with scrap clay so that you will have a smooth surface to work on afterward.
- Roll out the yellow, and cut it into a square-ish shape
- Make sure it fits into that part you cut out of the foil.
- Roll out the green, and use the yellow clay as the template for cutting
- After laying it yellow, green , yellow
- Place it where you cut out the foil.
- Cut off any excess, and shape it so it about the same as your template
- Roll out the main body colour
- Wrap it around the cake ( you may want to use cornstarch to help you blend)
- The shape should look something like this so far
- Take some scrap clay, and shape it into a circle
- Roll out the brown clay and wrap it around the ears + blend
- To attach it onto the cake, cut a little off the base of the ears. (Or you could just flatten the base)
- Place it onto the cake.
- Take a blob of the yellow, flatten it and place it on the ears.
- Make oval shapes with the brown, and place it where the eyes go
- Place another blob in the middle
- Roll out the brown and make a mouth with it
- It should look like the first image
- Cut a slice out – make sure you don’t cut into the foil
- Use a needle tool and add the cake texture onto the sponge
- Add a heart on the ears.
- Mix the TLS with brown pastel
- Add it onto the cake, make sure you create a drizzle effect.
- If you want , you can add sprinkles onto the chocolate part. In my case, I used ‘nuts’ and ‘white choclate flakes’
- Bake + glaze
There we go ^^
I will also add that my clay did have air bubbles in it after baking (luckily it was on the bottom). However, this time, the air didn’t escape and so the bottom of the cake was uneven.
To make it even, I cut the clay that stuck out, and just mended the hole with clay and re-baked it. Air bubbles did not appear the second time ^^
