Cool Mr. Squiggle Birthday Cake for My Hubby

As I was overseas for my husband’s birthday, I decided to make him a late birthday cake. With some encouraging words from my husband we decided to make the old TV favorite, Mr Squiggle. I wanted to try something completely out of my comfort zone, a standing cake.

I made the whole thing in 2 days. Hubby built the cake stand, and then I set to work. My biggest issue was the head, getting the  “pencil” nose to stay on, and the weight of the whole thing sinking the neck into the body below!! Really could have done with extra support dowels in the bottom tier. Overall I was/am extremely happy with how it turned out. Was such a shame to cut it up and eat it though.

When people saw the pictures of my cake, they were sure that perhaps it was NOT cake. I got so many lovely comments, and it brought back so many fond memories of the TV show!
