A tasty bit of fan art, with vanilla cake and chocolate buttercream.



  1. Print out the template twice and cut it out.
  2. Cut one cake board into the shape and size of the templates.
  3. Level your cakes using a serrated knife.
  4. Brush some simple syrup onto the cut sides of the cakes.
  5. Place one of the cakes onto a cake board, not the one cut to the size and shape of the template, and pipe or spread on some chocolate buttercream.
  6. Place the other cake layer cut side down onto the chocolate buttercream and pipe a dot of chocolate buttercream on top.
  7. Now place the other shaped cake board onto it. And carve off the pieces of cake that stick out from the cutting board.
  8. Place upside down, remove the non-cut cake board from the top and pipe buttercream around the sides and top. Smooth this out using a palette knife.
  9. Refrigerate for about an hour to firm up.
  10. Roll out the black fondant, to 0,5 centimetres thick, so it’s big enough to drape over the cake.
  11. Drape it over the cake and smooth it down.
  12. Place the template, after removing the white parts, on top and gently indent the pattern onto your cake.
  13. Combine silver or gold food colouring with a little bit of lemon juice to create an edible paint and brush it onto the cake to fill in the pattern.


*Baked in two cake pans with a diameter of 18,5 cm.
