Homemade Bagpuss Cake

We're really short of money at the moment, and so I decided to make my own birthday cake, using whatever I had available in the cupboard.

The Bagpuss Cake is made of Wright's Madeira cake mix, and also their chocolate fudge mix, which I gave a marbled look, then sandwiched together with jam and butter cream.

Bagpuss is made of marzipan, with fondant for his ears, nose, whiskas and bits on his feet. I painted his stripes on. But had to do many coats to get to the desired shade. The flowers and the writing are also made of fondant using cutters.

Although the cake was really nice I couldn't have eaten it all myself, so shared it out with some family and friends.

This Bagpuss Cake I made for my friend's daughter last May. It's made of Madeira with a buttercream filling and crumb layer and then a sugarpaste outer case.

The sugerpaste was 'feathered' to create the fur effect and the whiskas are made from florestry wire.

I try and make cakes as real as possible, some more successful than other but it's a matter of practice.

Hope you like it!

How to make a Bagpuss cake
by: Heather

I didn't use a specific tin for the cat, the head was made from a 9" round cake tin and the body I used a grill pan and carved the body of the cat to make the shape.

The feathered effect was made by using a sharp knife and making little lines across to look like feathers or fur. The two colours were strips of fondant placed alternatively together and 'glued' together with edible glue.
