This one is for you LOST fans, and for a birthday of one fan in particular :)
The cake is basically made up of three layers (2 chocolate and one orange), sandwiched with a Conitreau flavoured chocolate ganache. The ganache was made with half milk chocolate and half dark chocolate, then a tablespoon of Cointreau added at the end. I covered the cake with ready-to-roll fondant icing and the models were made out of modelling paste. The ocean and jungle were painted with gel paste colours diluted with vodka.
Have a great weekend (long weekend if you're in Oz) and do take a pause to remember them. We've got visitors this weekend, so if Malaysian Monday doesn't appear on time, do be patient (I know you wonderful readers always are).
