hoping someone could offer advice on how I'd go about making this Gruffalo cake for my son's 1st birthday (picture attached, hopefully) - I'm a total cake decorating novice (so asking well in advance, he's only 4months! Have a feeling I'll need lots of practise!)
No idea how I'd approach this in the slightest, from the shaping to the icing - but I'm hoping to wow the guests at his party as I'm wanting to start my own children's party planning business so everything needs to be rather spectacular!
Thanks in advance... I'm so glad I've found this site - the warning on the left there is very accurate, it is highly addictive I've been lurking for the past 4hours!!!
looks like the body is made of cake then carved. The head probably rkt or styrofoam with fondant accents. Wish I could be more help
If you don't have much experience with carving, you could always make a basic cake and have a modeling chocolate figure on top. Just a thought.
(By the way, my kids LOVE that book!)
thank you both!!
Guess I could give carving a try, like I said plenty of time to practice
If I don't get the hang of that moulded figures would be a perfect alternative (I could do the other characters too that way!!)
thanks again for the advice xx
