I made this In the Night Garden Birthday Cake Idea for my friend’s son Joseph`s first birthday, he loves Iggle Piggle. Before starting I looked around on similar websites for ideas of where to start – so here is my cake.
It is an 8 inch Victoria sponge with raspberry jam and buttercream. I covered the cake and a 10 inch board with sugarpaste lightly coloured with holly green colouring and covered with orange disco glitter for extra sparkle. Then made the Ninky Nonk train free hand from sugar paste and the characters with a home made silicone mould and painted them with sugarflair paste colours.
After icing the message I glued the Ninky Nonk and characters into position with left over royal icing and put a few flowers on using 2 sizes of flower plunger cutters.
