"The Little man gets a Mouche" -Birthday edition

A Vanilla milk cake layered with Seasoned Fig filling and frosted in Ganache. When I was told that Tharun, the celebrant is turning twelve, the first thing that struck me was a Mouche that most boys acquire and shyly carry over through the teens.Since fall season has crept in already I decided to dress the cake in a red and black plaid sweater. And there he was, clad in the fuzzy fabric paired with a polka-dotted bow tie, a hat and his usual pair of frames. I have used fondant to create all the above elements.The body has been embossed and handpainted to give it the plaid look. Made for Tharun who celebrated his twelfth birthday as requested by his parents Rajith and Smitha.
