Coolest In the Night Garden First Birthday Cake

For this homemade in the night garden first birthday cake – I started off by making a square cake using a packet mix, and cut it into pieces to make a number one.

I covered the cake all over in green buttercream icing, and piped some grass using a grass tip around the edges (you could do the entire surface but it takes a while). I stuck Iggle Piggle on the top as it was the birthday boy’s favourite character, and the others I stuck to the cake board with icing, then piped more grass around their feet. I finished it off with sprinkles to represent the flowers.

The figurines I got from Target (in Australia), but I have seen them in toy shops around too.
