Oi Frog! - A cake for World Book Day

As all parents of young children know, tomorrow is World Book Day. In fact many of us will tonight  be hastily putting together costumes for the children to wear to school tomorrow. To mark the event I would like to share some pictures of one of my latest cakes with you.

'Oi Frog' is a new children's picture book by author Kes Gray and illustrator Jim Field, published just last month. To celebrate the launch of the book their publisher commissioned a cake featuring the main character, a grumpy frog, sitting on a log. Hodder Children's Books took the cake along to a school event that the pair were attending, and surprised them with it. 

I love this picture of Kes and Jim with their cake.
