Zak's Volcano

 Zak's Volcano  on Cake Central

I did this cake back shortly before I finished Wilton 1, for my nephew's Luau-themed birthday party. I used the Wonder Pan for the top, overfilling it so it reached the maximum 8" diameter. For the base tier I used a 9"x3" round pan. The French Buttercream icing was piped on in a shell pattern, then smoothed slightly with a hot spatula to give it the texture you see in the side. The shell pattern was not smoothed beneath the raspberry filling/lava. The sides were airbrushed.

Thanks so much for your feedback! I just overpainted the green with a bare touch of brown, to give it a more natural mix of plant a and soil-look. The gray was an 11:1 white to black ratio of airbrush color. The lava is just basic raspberry filling from the 2 lb tube, left to run down the front. Theresa
