This cake was my first try of making figures using a wire structure. The amount of extra form and movement you can give the character is awesome! (Or should that be Thor-some? 😉) Definitely worth a go if you want to add extra dimension to your cakes! After finding an image online of how I wanted Thor to look, I used florist wire and eyeballed the basic ‘skeleton’, twisting the wire to give extra strength:
By covering the wires in a thin layer of fondant it made it easier to sculpt the figure over the top and hammer out the details – I really want to try this using modelling chocolate aswell to see which works best!
I also did this for the lightning bolts to add the finishing touches!⚡️⚡️
