Candice ordered a birthday cake from me in June – a vanilla cake with chocolate butter icing – shaped like Humpty Dumpty!
There was quite possibly more planning and structural assembly in this cake than in any other cake I’ve done!
I did a lot of contemplation as to how I was going to do Humpty… Whether to do a cake wall with a sugar paste egg, or a cake wall with a rice krispy treat egg, or do everything in cake…
I went with the last option and sculpted Humpty and the wall – all out of cake!
I was a nervous wreck transporting this cake to the birthday boy’s house! I was cradling it gingerly all the way there, terrified it would fall over in the car and Humpty would be smashed!
