Fireman Sam cake

This cake was a lot of fun to do!  It was a HUGE cake as well, measuring 11 inches in length and 5 inches wide.  My friend's daughter loves watching Fireman Sam so mum thought it would be great if she could have it for her second birthday.  I have to say it did come with a few challenges.  I have not covered such an unusual shaped cake before so it took a couple of attempts to cover the whole truck in the red fondant smoothly.

Horse cake

I made this cake for a friend's daughter who loves horse riding.  She didn't want any too complicated so I made a simple horse topper for the cake and added some fondant flowers, butterflies and buttercream grass to finish the effect.  The horse is made out of gumpaste.  The cake is covered in green buttercream and I made some swirling effects with the end of the spatula.

The birthday girl loved it and so did I. :)
