Easy To Make Hedgehog cake

I originally published this article back in 2010 after I made this cake for my daughter Issy's birthday.

She wanted a Hedgehog cake, and I knew that Tesco sold ready made Hedgehog cakes.

Unfortunately, they had stopped selling them a few months before Issy's birthday, and so I was reduced to grabbing cake making items frantically, and then creating a cake on the fly from imagination.

I was rather pleased with the result though.

After several webspace changes / webspace deletes etc. I thought that the pictures of the cake were lost, but I was pleased to rediscover my cake pics in my Google Album Archive.

I did notice that someone had swiped a pic and added my hedgehog cake to a "Top Ten" list of hedgehog cakes on the internet.

So once again, XX years later... Here is how to make my easy Hedgehog cake.


You will need the following ingredients:

  • Several small Toblerone's for the Spikes.
  • Two white chocolate drops for the Eyes.
  • One Malteser for the Nose.
  • Two Matchmakers for the Whiskers.
  • Two Large Chocolate Swiss Rolls for the body.
  • One pot of Betty Crockers Chocolate Fudge Icing.

And then do the following with those ingredients:

  1. Put the two Swiss rolls together and trim them into approx. hedgehog head and body shape.
  2. Plaster that body shape in Betty Crockers Icing all over.
  3. Use the icing while still wet to glue the Toblerone spikes to the body.
  4. Add nose, whiskers and eyes.
  5. Dot of icing in middle of each eye.

Job done. Happy Daughter!

This cake is super sweet. Your teeth will hurt and wiggle while you eat :-)
