Apparently Wiggles gear can be hard to source these days, so I was asked if I could make a big red car figure for a 2 year old birthday boy.
I had to have a giggle yesterday... when the big red car (which was made from solid fondant) was out on display, one of the guests decided to try and take a bite out of the blue wiggles head. This is as far as he got: Can you see the wee teeth marks on his head? :)
So excited! I came third place in the Non Guild Seniors category. When I dropped the cake off yesterday I became very intimidated by the quality of the other cakes in my class and thought that I definately wouldn't win a placing. But the judges must have seen something in my cake.
So here it is...

This is the first place winner
This is the second place winner

Well, it's cake exhibition today. I have NEARLY finished my cake. This morning when Emmy came out she said "I love your cake Mummy". So I feel like a winner already :)
Ok so I know my cake isn't the same kind of thing that I predict the other competitors will come up with, but I stayed true to myself and put all the things that I know Emmy likes on it. I have enjoyed the experience so far and learnt lots (I know what cake cleats are now!). And I am looking forward to seeing all the other cakes in the show.
I made these cakes for a little girl who was turning one. The large ladybird is a banana cake. It was a bit of a challenge cooking such a large cake in a stainless steel bowl (it was a triple mixture), but I got there in the end!
And I made a little "smash cake" so the birthday girl could go nuts with it. That one was a plain vanilla cake inside.
And I wasn't 100% sure the main cake would be big enough for all the guests, so I made a chocolate cake that they could cut up if they needed more.
