About this Bake

This cake is a chocolate cake with a hazelnut ganache filling and hazelnut buttercream icing. The mushrooms are fondant icing painted with food colouring and water and the ‘moss’ is crushed pistachio nuts. I made the bark of the ‘tree’ by melting chocolate in strips.

Top tip

Make sure the cakes are level and cool before icing and stacking.
