In The Night Garden Cake – Cake of the Week

Of all the characters, I make, Upsy Daisy has got to be one of my least favourites. There’s so much that can go wrong with her (her spikes can break if you just look at them funny) and there’s tons of detail that takes forever. Every time I make one I say, ‘Never again’ … until the next time.

Iggle Piggle is a joy to make in comparison – as long as I remember to make his body a couple of days in advance to dry (which I did this time – no Creme Eggs or Walnut Whips necessary for this one)

So, I guess, what I’m saying is don’t expect many In the Night Garden cakes to be featured here – I’m not saying never, I’m just saying Not Often ๐Ÿ˜‰

It was a great week for the Cake of the Week linky last week:

We had a delicious looking (and flour free – does that make it gluten free?) chocolate roulade from Cara & Emma came back for a second visit with an intriguing Coconut Milk Layer Cake. Over at the Five F’s, Kate is getting familiar with sugarpaste and finding just how much colouring is needed for vivid colours with this very neat Football Cake (Tip: I always buy my deep coloured sugarpaste ready made – have spent too long mixing reds and blacks).

After posting my Peppa Pig tutorial earlier this week, I was shown an amazing Peppa and Friends cake by @JudeandOllie – I could spend days looking at the amount of detail in this cake. Wonderful!


I also want to introduce you to my new apprentice, my daughter Millie. I didn’t know I had an apprentice until yesterday when she brought me her Playdoh rose – Just shows that they watch every little thing that you do!

Link is up as usual – share with us your creations over the next week. Looking forward to seeing them.

    Thanks for the mention. This was a bit last minute (decided what to do on Monday, birthday Tuesday!) and I never realised how long and drawn out it would be. I know for next time!

    It’s South Lancs CCC on Tuesday so you can expect another cake of the week next week from me!
