An Autumn Cake For A 2 Year Old!

I have been itching to decorate a cake….

So when Laura’s mum asked me to bake & decorate her little girl’s 2nd Birthday cake I was both excited & shocked! Gosh! It felt like a few months since I had done Laura’s 1st Birthday cake.

Laura is an October baby & her mum loves Autumn colours. Last year we decided on a chocolate cake covered with light green fondant, a sweet little teddy bear as a topper, with a few cute lady birds & delicate yellow flowers.

This year’s cake theme is also very Autumnal. Laura is obsessed with hedgehogs & butterflies, so her mum asked me to create a cake using Autumn coloured leaves, butterflies, mushrooms & small flowers. I used Pinterest for inspiration, & once I had a clear idea of what I wanted the cake to look like, I started making the toppers, leaves & flowers.

I baked two 6 inches (3″ depth) chocolate cakes which I covered in a very thin layer of vanilla buttercream. I used a textured rolling pin to create the effect on the green fondant, and a sugarpaste extruder for the grass. It’s so much fun when I have the right tools to work with: makes the cake decorating so stress-free!

The cake assembling took only a few hours. I did the decorations, all edible, a few days before to have enough time to dry completely.

What do you think?

Miss Hedgehog is my favorite. She is so cute & suprisingly easy to make. I used the step by step tutorial from TeaCakeAndCreateBlog. She’s such a cutie!
