2. Carving and Ganaching

This is a great shape to practice your carving and as Paul always says, it’s not surgery so don’t panic if you cut too much off! Ganache is always there to stick the cake back together. Paul then adds a layer of ganache, refrigerates then adds a final layer before smoothing off.

3. Covering the cake

This is quite an awkward shape to cover, but let Paul take you through the process where he ends up with a neatly covered half dome cylinder.

4. Covering the board and adding the legs

With the threaded rods, it makes covering the board a little more tricky with this one. Paul adds two panels each side before merging together where the legs stick out. He then goes on to shape then add the legs to cover the threaded rods.

5. Adding the feet

You have some poetic license here or you can follow Paul as he creates ‘friendly’ monster feet.

6. Adding the tail

Paul goes for a cute little tail, but you can adapt to the size and style you like to suit your design. He spends a bit of time merging the tail to the body, sharing a few techniques in the process.

7. Adding the eyes

Paul adds the ‘cute’ to the monster look as he adds three dopey looking eyes. Just using white, black and green sugarpaste and round cutters he creates an amazing look.

8. Adding the mouth and nose

Using simple techniques, Paul creates the mouth, teeth and nose for our little monster. He first tries a darker blue nose, but didn’t feel that it worked so changed back to the body colour.
