Coolest Winnie the Pooh 1st Birthday Cake

This was my first attempt at making a cake. It was a Winnie the Pooh 1st Birthday cake for my oldest daughter’s 1st birthday.

I found a picture of Winnie the Pooh online that I liked and enlarged it on the photocopier where I work.

I made a carrot cake and then cut the Winnie the Pooh shape out. I crumb coated the cake first and then covered it in homemade butter cream frosting.

The biggest challenge was getting his shirt red enough with only liquid food colouring (I live on a little island and had no access to the pastes). I found that making the frosting the day before allowed the colour to darken up.

My daughter really loved her cake.
