My little boy’s dad laboured night after night over this cake…I made madeira sponge cake to size (one round, probably around 10″, two rectangular, ) and his dad decorated it with such painstaking care and attention to detail, even down to ‘fluffing up’ Sully’s fur with a fork. All hand coloured and painted with food colouring mixed and tested to be exactly the right shade for the green and blue and purple spots (we had tester strips of Royal icing hanging around the kitchen for a while!). Mikes eye and arms and legs were marzipan, Sully had chocolate buttons for claws, Mike had white chocolate buttons for his toe nails, our little boy was over the moon with his Monster Cake at his Monster Party.
