Grace’s toadstool cake
We celebrated Grace’s 6th birthday today with a enchanted forest fairy party, and for the cake we made…a fairy toadstool cake!
There is a bit of a back story with the cake. Things were looking good, icing on the bottom part and it was all going smoothly. We carefully put the top part on and it was all looking good. Then things started to happen….well just one thing really – the cake started to collapse on itself.
Very fortunately it did stabilise, or at least it did for long enough to make it to the party – it even gave the cake more character.
Here is the back of the cake (which started as tall as the front). I think cutting the cake to size just took away all the strength and the weight of the cake on top just squished the walls out.
Fortunately it held it together and was well received. It was a good team effort to put this together, and we even managed to get to sleep at a decent time last night!
