oh wow, I bow down to you , Its fab , Im just started planning a Gruffalo Cake for my son's 2nd Birthday ,so I thought I would look at other peoples , and yours is the best by far I hope I can do as much justice as you have to the humble Gruffalo . :O)
Ahh thanks Gill! It was quite a trial to make but my nephew was happy with it - good luck with yours, would love to see a photo!
Wow, that is amazing! Was the head made of cake too?
Thanks! Yes, the head was cake too!
i know its a bit late for a comment, but hoe did u get the head cake and body cake in those shapes and how do they balance on top of each other? x
The cakes were sculpted into shape and stacked in a similar way to a regular tiered cake - hope that helps!
aww i really want to make this for my sons 1st birthday but some how dont think i can :/ great work of art tho xx
wow thats amazing wish i could make this an wish i new how great work of art xx
Hi, did you use dowels to support the head ??? x
Thanks sopherella22!Anonymous - I did use dowels, supported just like a tiered cake.
Hi This cake is amazing would you mind giving me some idea how much icing is needed to do this as I would love to have an amateur attempt for my daughters birthday I just need to make sure she doesn't see this picture and see what a good one looks like!!
Hi, it depends on the size of Gruffalo you're going to make but I would guess from 1.5kg...hope this helps!
Hi, My son would love this cake for his birthday!!! Do you have a price?
Hi Emma, details of the Gruffalo cake can be found here http://www.carolinescakecompany.co.uk/index_files/GruffaloCake.htm
Hi there. Amazing cake. To give an idea of size could you let me know what size board you used here please? Thank you so much xx
Hi ElisesMummy I believe I used 6" round cakes for the body so I would assume the cake board was 12" in diameter, I hope that helps!
Hi Caroline. Thank you so much. One more question please, how many cakes did you stack for the body, and also the head. I have this cake to make for a friend in a few days and i'm panicking! Thank you very much xx
Hi, it depends on how deep your cakes are...I would estimate 3 for the body and 2-3 for the head. good luck!
This is such a fab cake, im hoping to do one of these for nephew also, would you mind me asking what you made the arms & legs out of please, im thinking normal icing or rice krispie treats, i would be very grateful, thankyou :)
Just normal icing!
