For my 28th birthday I made a cake inspired by the notorious Nyan Cat. My inspiration for this project came from Lydia Bakes. The cake is the orange chiffon cake from Tartine. It's easy recipe and forms a very level cake. I used raspberry jam and the Quick White Icing I from Joy Of Cooking, using Cointreau for flavor. Then, for a complete 180 from the Tartine aesthetic, I used colorful fondant for my 8-bit cat. Wilton makes nice packs of multiple colors, and I did a little color-mixing to get the greys. (For those of you in Austin, Make It Sweet is a nice local business that sells baking supplies.) Instead of cutting out each piece for the rainbow trail, I rolled out individual colors into snakes, lined them up, then rolled them flat into a rainbow. I dampened the surface and applied edible glitter. The final touch was french dragees for the stars.
