Izzy’s Hedgehog Birthday Cake

Hedgehog Cake
My 5 year old daughter Izzy decided that she wanted a Hedgehog Birthday cake and I leapt to the challenge, knowing that Tesco sell hedgehog birthday cakes very reasonably. This all went horribly pear-shaped when I found that Tesco had stopped selling them and so I set to task creating my own hedgehog and the pic is the result.


It was actually pretty easy if I’m honest. Two large chocolate swiss rolls, trim them down a bit and put them next to each other with a bit of the trimmed bit at the front to form the head shape. Next some Betty Crockers chocolate fudge icing (ready made in the pot) and do a plastering / cementing job all over creating the hedgehog shape. Malteser for the nose, Matchmakers for the whiskers, white chocolate buttons with blob of icing for the eyes and three small toblerones broken up and stuck on the icing for the spikes. Went down well and happy Izzy 🙂
