Hey fellow cake makers!!

I stumbled across this web site only about an hour ago when looking for some advice on how to make a gruffalo cake. I was soooo impressed by the talent of fellow cake makers that i signed up straight away!!! and i have to say Im loving it!!!! ......just have to get some of my own cakes uploaded and see what people say! : )


......but i have a question for all you guys.....i have been asked to make a Grufffalo for a friend of mine, i want to have the gruffalo sitting up right but not sure how to do it. Do i make the body out of cake and the head from foam or do i make it all cake? any suggestions or tutorials would be appreciated! : )


thanks in advance!

Elaine : )

Um...Gruffalo? Is that a giraffe/buffalo hybrid? Is this actually an animal? I'd help you, but    I'm lost!

I made a gruffalo, if you look in my album under children's cakes. I made the body out of cake. The head was a combination of cake and rice krispie treats.
