Foodporn Friday: Gruffalo Cake
Two weeks ago Destructaboy turned 3. He is a Gruffalo fanatic, knows both books by heart and I challenge you to try and skip a page at bedtime! He likes to tell everyone that he is the “Little Brown Mouse” so of course for his birthday I just had to make a Gruffalo cake.
My first fondant Gruffalo and Little Brown Mouse were left out one night to dry and when I got up the next morning the ants were feasting, so the ones on the cake were made the night before the party using fondant with some tylose powder added.
The cake is a zebra cake using my standard chocolate and vanilla cake recipes and the frosting was green buttercream made into grass with a grass icing nozzle.
