ABC Birthday cake

I made this birthday cake yesterday for my 2 year old niece Aoibhinn.  It is made using a rectangular tin about 10 inches in length.  I used a classic Victoria sponge recipe, spread buttercream icing on it and covered it in white sugarpaste.  I made the model fruit and veg a few days earlier.  This is an idea I got from a book I have called “50 easy party cakes” by Debbie Brown.  The figures were easy enough to make, I had to mix colours to white sugarpaste to make a yellow, green and red colours for the apple, banana & carrot.  The book shape is difficult enough to get right.  ABCCake2 (Small)It needs a dip in the middle, I added a red bookmark to try to make it look more like a book.  The cake itself went down well with the families at the party.  Aoibhinn’s favourite bit was the characters which she wasn’t letting go of.  She also loved the white sugarpaste.ABCCake
