I made this homemade Arthur cake for my son’s third birthday. It has always been one of my favourites. I made a large rectangle cake and cut out an oval shape using a picture as a guide. I cut out two circles for ears, I iced the sides in butter cream and rolled them in crushed chocolate biscuits. I used white buttercream for his eyes, buttercream coloured with parisian essence (just a touch) for a light skin tone and pink for the ears.
The glasses were made by cutting out the frame for each eye out of chocolate modelling fondant. I made the eyes using a circle cutter on the modelling fondant. The blush was achieved by using a small amount of the pink and swirling it into the cheek area BEFORE putting the glasses on. It is outlined then with black piping gel.
