About this Bake

This was a cake made for a friend’s son. It's made of three chocolate sponges, carved down into a shake shape, covered in ganache and fondant. It was then painted with food colours, which were mixed with vodka.

Top tip

Use a layer of ganache underneath the fondant. It gives a much better finish and is easier to work with than buttercream.
