Drum-Kit Cake

It was my D's 13th birthday yesterday, so I made him a drum-kit cake!

The cake base was rich 50%/50% dark/milk chocolate cake with a milk chocolate ganache topping, and the drums were made of the same, but cupcakes, brushed with apricot jam and covered with fondant. Next time I will wait for the drums/icing to set properly before assembling, as it was all a bit squishy! It was fun but incredibly tricky making the little marzipan figure - the best bit were the little Converse sneakers, but I forgot to take a photo of them and they ended up drowned in chocolate ganache hehe arms and torsos were a little unruly too haha
