Well one picture anyway, I will post more tomorrow.


It is a large chocolate sponge with a creamed butter, icing sugar and melted dark club chocolate icing.
Pooh bear, kanga with Roo, Tigger and the wheel barrow are part of a play party set of ebay. I then planed on finding Rabbit online and laminating him, but Sarah said we have to have Eeyor! and Piglet, and Hephalump...lol so I laminated all of those and cut them out. They are all just pushed into the icing except for Piglet who I glued to the fence. The fence I swiped from Sarah's room. The signs I made by writting on paper and stuck them each on a toothpick. They say "rabbits garden" and "keep owt!" The garden has carrots and cauliflowers and the wheel barrow has carrots, cauliflower and pumpkins. I made those all out of sugar paste and colourd it with liquid food colourings. That was the cake last night then this morning I swapped hephalump to the front to make room for Gopher at the back as well. Lol nearly all the gang are there except for Owl who Sarah doesn't care for and CR who Sarah doesn't care for either...he's a boy see.. I think it turned out pretty good.

Oh, that's so cute! You did a great job. I'm sure that took a lot of time to make. It's almost a shame that it will be eaten! I cannot bake, so I'm always super impressed at those who do it well.

Lol, I can't bake either, the spounge is bought! I only decorate. The hardest part of that was the icing because I made a double batch together. That had 2 packets of butter, 3 cups of icing sugar and two slabs of dark chocolate. Just as well I have a large bowl! (For anyone that wants that recipe-single is one 250gm butter, 1 1/2 cup icing sugar and one 250g block choc melted. It's really yummy icing) I didn't use it all up but it needed the double batch. The actual icing of it and putting together of the pieces didn't take long at all.

P.S the vegetables I started making a couple of weeks ago as they have to dry. Thats like playing with play dough, I did those in front of the telly.

It is fun! Getting the colour right can be a bit tedious so I only did that at night when I had plenty of time and used one drop of colour at a time. A couple of times Sarah had a play with it too and used some play dough cutters and ate them for morning tea the next day lol. After we cut the cake I went to pull up the carrots but realized they were as hard as real carrots to pull up! So after one broke off in the cake I just cut next to them.
