The cauliflowers were my favourite part of this cake. They were made using raffaello chocolates and green fondant. Everyone was fighting over who got to eat the raffaelo's and dad somehow managed to hide one away until Sunday.
The carrots were orange fruit sticks and ming leaves and the tomatoes were jaffas and green icing. The book said to use fondant but I was having trouble getting the crosses to stay on the tomatoes. Instead I just whipped up a simple icing with icing sugar, water and green colouring and used it for both the crosses and the vine.
I love making birthday cakes and I am already planning what I can do for the next birthday in the family which is my mum's. I have a few ideas but trying to decide which I can actually pull off! I can't wait till next year when I will have an extra cake to make for Miss Squishy's first birthday. Is it wrong that I am already thinking of ideas for her first birthday party???
