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.
