Sudoku & Sushi

This weekend me and The Cakery went 'all Oriental' with two last minute cake orders...

The first for the birthday of Super Sudoku player, Else.  
This cake features a real sudoku game just in case Else fancied completing it before cutting it, unfortunately the pencil was pure sugar and therefore not the right tool for puzzling with!
It was entirely hand painted using a handy mix of black food paste, vodka and a surprisingly steady hand considering the night out I was forced to attend the night before! ;)
Although I could've used an edible printed image to create the puzzle I personally believe that that's cheating, the only edible prints used at the Coloured Bubble are of the artistic sort... you can read all about that at the vintage cupcake post!

According to the customer, it was very well received!

The second oriental inspired cake this weekend was a Sushi Cake.
This was great fun to make and I can assure you that no fish were harmed in any way in the making of it!
I particularly enjoyed the modelling of hundreds of grains of rice... not!
It's all in the name of perfectionism though of course, so it had to be done, and I got there in the end.

Now, where did I put my weekend??!! :)
