This Teletubbies Birthday Cake was a special request for the 2 year old nephew of a work colleague. The little boy loves the Teletubbies which airs on CBeebies. All the cake toppers are hand formed from sugar paste which I coloured myself. I started making the toppers a week before and just carried on doing them one by one in the evening after work (after my twins had fallen asleep).
I used florist’s wire and toothpicks for support. The little scooter was probably the most challenging for me, but I was over the moon with the end result.
The cake itself was a 25 cm square carrot cake about 10 cm high and was actually larger than I thought it would be. I used a cream cheese frosting which actually stood up quite well….fortunately it is still fairly temperate in Botswana as we are nearing the end of winter.I coloured about 2 kg of sugarpaste in grassy green and covered cake the night before.
The cake was a huge hit. The mother was very pleased and the birthday boy instantly recognized the Teletubby characters! All in all, I was super happy with how the cake turned out.

I am amazed at your skill, and dedication. The figures look like plastic toys, I can’t believe you made them. Are you a professional baker?
No…I am very much a “hobby baker”. I have only ever made 3 cakes with handformed sugar toppers. A 64 Zoo lane cake, a Ben 10 and the Teletubbies cake. I work full-time, but find that I really enjoy making the toppers….a creative outlet I suppose. Thanks for the compliment!
