A Ben and Holly Birthday Cake

I have just realised that I didn't publish a single blog post during April. I think that is my first month without posting anything since I started two years ago. I have some exciting posts coming up soon as I have been busy writing recipes, but for now I will leave you with a picture of my latest birthday cake, featuring Ben Elf, Princess Holly and their pet ladybird, Gaston. As well as the cake I made lots of cupcakes featuring some of the characters' faces. These were a bit fiddly, but fun to do. Ben and Holly's Little Kingdom is a lovely kids' programme with some entertaining characters and storylines. It's a shame that my two have moved on to slightly less charming things!


  1. I appreciate these designer cakes that can be ordered on kid's birthday. Personally, I expect that my little daughter will be filled with joy to have toy designed cake under her possession.

  2. This is amazing. Do you make these to buy or have you got instructions? Nicola :)

    1. Hi there. Thanks for your kind comment. I do sell these cakes, but I'm afraid I haven't written a tutorial.
