About this Bake

Baked for my grandson's 3rd birthday, this is a moist chocolate fudge cake filled and crumb coated with chocolate milkshake buttercream. The Gruffalo and friends sit atop a tree stump. All are hand-crafted and celebrate the Gruffalo's birthday with a picnic tea set out before them.

Top tip

Always bake with room temperature ingredients. Plan ahead with a time plan!
