Shrek Cake

My sister asked me to help her with a Shrek cake she was making. She used a doll tin to bake the cake and covered it with fondant that she had made to look like wood.

I made the roots using wire and wrapped fondant around it, tapped the fondant with a sharp knife to give a wood effect. I stuck a tiny piece of straw into the cake before sticking the wire into the straw, so the wire would not touch the cake.

A lovely cake and we had fun making it together!!


  1. What a fun cake! Your fondant Shrek is adorable!
