My Christmas Minion cake made for the Christmas bake off at work in aid off our sponsored charity Sue Ryder. The cake is made of 4 layers of chocolate sponge with chocolate and vanilla layers of ganache with cranberries sprinkled on each layer.

The fondant is coloured by hand and the whole cake edible. I love minions and feel sometimes that’s what many of us think we are at work sometimes so very appropriate. Wanted to enter a novelty cake but with a bit of a Christmas them so decorated the minion in a elf outfit.

I work in retail so we all feel like a tax little helpers around Christmas filing shelves. The cakes were to be auctioned and monies raised going to sue Ryder but so many wanted to have the cake that we decided to sell it by the slice and probably made more that way then as a whole cake.

Lots of compliments as usually don’t do chocolate cake but was very moist and rich, many had more than one slice and took home for themselves or their partners. Love making cakes for friends and family and do as a hobby when not working (46 hours a week).
