About this Bake

My daughter's mum Anjalee made this amazing cake for our three-year-old's birthday party, shaped like her favourite character. Everything here is edible, including the mouse, mushrooms and the moss-covered log (which is a Swiss roll). The Gruffalo itself is a layered chocolate sponge cake.

Top tip

Plan ahead! The Gruffalo's face is sculpted with fondant and modelling chocolate.
