Paul introduces us to his adorable 3D Cow Cake decoration course! Not only does it look great but it tastes yummy too, with chocolate sponge cake, covered in dark chocolate ganache. Paul has come up with a brilliant way to create an incredibly cute and free standing cow cake, which is surprisingly easy to make. Perfect for beginners looking to go to the next level...
This cake is perfect for a birthday celebration or for anyone who loves animals, and the personalised plaque is a lovely touch. The design incorporates many different skills and techniques such as modelling work, creating a plaque, cake carving, working with ganache, airbrush work and more. This cake has a very contemporary feel and - since once you've mastered it you could turn it into any animal - the possibilities are endless. Wouldn't take much to turn it into a highland cow...use your imagination and go wild!

We would love to see your take on the Molly the Farmyard Cow - please share your snaps with us on our Facebook Page!
