3. Ok eggs check.
Now ingredients are mixed together place batter in oven.
We are done. Cakes baked and cooled but wait, still have to cook dinner .
OK dinner over back to cake. Ring Ring. OK well now it is about 8:15 pm . Use milk and dark choc ganache on sides of cake. Don’t want it to sweet so not using fondant other than for the figures.These can be taken off. What to use on top I, umm what can I do the top with again ganache but with varying colored coconut, mark grids with a clean ruler. Skewers up the huge man although not as large as the pick and sword which had to be diamond coloreds. Add the sheep and chicken and a creeper on the side. 10:00 pm .
