Cool Homemade Golden Snitch Birthday Cake

My son wanted a Golden Snitch Birthday Cake for his birthday and I wasn’t sure how to approach it. I made a round cake using Wilton soccer tin. I made the wings out of paper and sprayed them with golden hairspray on both sides and then attached them to wooden skewers and placed them in position (after colouring the cake).

I iced the cake with butter cream followed by white marzipan – this was a bit fiddly. I then copied some patterns onto the surface (make sure you do this before the icing goes hard as it will crack). I then painted the whole thing in gold edible coloured food dye and voila, a Golden Snitch!
