Spirited Away Cake by black-chips Spirited Away Cake by black-chips
It was my Friends Birthday today :D and so I made her a cake :la:

Those black things on the cake are called "soot sprites" and they appear in the movies "my neightbour totoro" and "spirited away".
The litle colored star stuff are some kind of food for the sprites, [link]

Edit: I was just told by the lovely :iconxxhawkpathxx: that the star things are called Kompeito, and that they actually exist in real life! [link]
Thank you for the information ^^)

Edit 2: Soo many people are faving so I don't have the time to thank you all in person, so, I'm going to thank you this way :D
Thank you so much for the :+fav: :dummy:

But in My Neighbor Totoro, they aren't candies. They represent the darkness that we see before our eyes adjust in a dark room.

You just bake an ordinary cake and add optinall filling and put on som white sugarpaste. The kompeitos are made out of coloured sugarpaste and the sootsprites are made out of chocolateballs, with black icing :3
