Legend of Zelda Link Cake

A Legend of Zelda Link cake?…I was a Mario girl, myself.  But I never pass up an opportunity to make a fun cake, especially one that features a video game character.

Animations and video games can be the best candidates for fondant due to their clean lines and solid coloring.  A simple foundation, like this stone base, allows for a clean “slate” for decorating.

Use edible marker to get the finer details, like his face and shield.  Anything that needs to hold its form, like Link’s shield and sword, should be made in advance and allowed to air dry. This will make drawing on it much easier, as well as providing a solid form for brushing on some edible silver dust.

If I were to make this again, I would definitely make the cake portion much larger!
