Brian vs. Holyfield

Boxing gloves made of truffle-dough - not because that is a good idea at all, but the cakes collapsed in the oven for some reason. I shaped the gloves a bit more upright, but they flowed out a little after covering with fondant unfortunatelly.

Since the boxers are of older vintage, i decorated the gloves the same way. Old and worn ;)

When i took the pics, i had just painted the whole thing with cocoa-water to add patina - hence the shine. It dried up nicely and looked great later on.

The flavor of the truffle-dough was chocolate mud-cake, raspberry mousse and chocolate butter creme. It was served with soft-ice and fresh berries and that definately was a perfect match!

Great game yesterday - Great night! :)
