I instantly loved the idea for this cake, simply because - What ever happened to ole Popeye?
This cake was a lot of fun to make I used two separate pan shapes but two of each so ...
two 9" rounds
two 10" squares
Each cake was filled and then sculpted.
I studied many different pictures of popeye to figure which direction I would like to go with him.
I basically deconstructed the face in my mind before beginning, assuming where I would need to build up the cake to create cheeks and chin and an nose. I added my buttercream and fondant after chilling it over night. Once the fondant was on I formed the aspects of the face and added details. I hope everyone likes it!!
