Totoro Cake!

my neighbor totoro cake!!!








Bob, one of the most literally awesome dudes in Vancouver, emailed me with an adorable request: to make a very special cake as a surprise for his wife, to celebrate their wedding anniversary! His request: a TOTORO themed cake! Hooray! I love Totoro!

Totoro is the cute and crazy star of the Japanese animation film My Neighbor Totoro. He is a mythical creature who comforts a little girl when her mother is sick in the hospital, and he flies around in a giant catbus with his other weird little Totoro buddies!

Remember Brody's 1st birthday party, and some other Totoro themed cupcakes I've made? Just love Totoro!! I was so happy with how my Totoro cake turned out. It was a cute 7 inch round cake, dark chocolate with chocolate buttercream, covered in fondant with fondant characters.

Thanks so much Bob! I hope your lady Katie loved it! :)
