Novelty cakes

I recently bought a silicone dome shaped cake mould and have been having fun icing the cakes.

I used my favourite chocolate cake to make this bumblebee. I added some black food colouring to make the cake extra dark and then bright yellow buttercream icing for the bumblebee stripes. Simple but effective.

I made the mummy and baby hedgehog using the same chocolate cake recipe, iced them with chocolate buttercream icing and Cadbury chocolate fingers make great spikes.

These would be great for a kids party.
