I am what I am and it's all that I am

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!!


  1. Hi Gina!!

    This is Kehau and I'm here to let you know that the cake was a HUGE success!!! Everyone LOVED it, especially the birthday boy!! I think we took about 40+ pictures of the cake! :)

    I can't thank you enough for helping in making his birthday one of the best of his life. You came through in such a time crunch; with a cake that was as delicious (I had a good couple slices....mmm, the cake itself was so nice and moist!) as it was exciting!

    I look forward to future events that we can do this again!! YAY!!

    Again, thank you!! You rock!~
