Bowling Pins Birthday cake- with homemade White Chocolate Fondant

I have been asked to make some cakes by none other than a few 8 year olds. Once they know they can have a theme based cake which not many can have from a grocery store, they have been asking me to come up with  a few cake ideas. This was for my sons best friend who turned 8 years old. They had  a bowling bday party. The kids freaked out at the bowling alley, thanks K for the party, they had a rolling time shooting the pins and at times falling when lifting the heavy balls.
Everything on this cake is edible. I made the track with marbleized effect, bowling balls and pins from modelling white chocolate or white chocolate fondant as it is commonly known. This cake would be special for me, as I learned  a new thing about the modeling chocolate and how great it tastes when compared with Fondant. You will be seeing a lot of models from this magic product on this blog now on. I drew the pins in 2 sizes free hand on paper, then laminated that sheet and then cutting it out, to use as a template for my pins. Hope you all like my efforts for this cake.


For the white chocolate fondant Click here

I needed to make  a 10 inch cake and about 12 cupcakes, so my prep with the white chocolate fondant looked like this.


Just coz I was so thrilled at the successful attempts, one more click,



There is no recipe as such for the cake, I made from the box, for the lack of time and convenience the boxed mixes offers to me. Whip me for using the boxed mix, but what a lazy girl to do!!

 The icing is whipped cream pudding icing.

** Whipped Cream icing can be made by using simply Heavy Whipping Cream and Conf Sugar,, The Rec is as

Follows..
One Cup heavy Whipping Cream
Half Cup Conf Sugar
**One packet Instant pudding mix. OR
IF desired One Packet Unflavored Gelatin dissolved in water.

Take a bigger bowl and keep some ice cubes in that.. Over the cubes place anr bowl. Take one cup cream and add sugar and Pudding mix( if needed )... and beat with electric mixer for about 5-7 mins on medium till soft peaks are on the blade. The icing is ready.



Since I cannot stop at just one, I added the dozen cupcakes with the pins as cupcake toppers. The kids loved the pins and before the cake they pins were gobbled by  a bunch of 8 year olds, requesting 2 pins be added to the cake next time onwards.
