February 2012: Edinburgh Vet School Cake Competition!

The time for the 2013 Vet School cake competition is coming…. and so I thought it would be appropriate to reflect on what I created in 2012 to take 1st place 🙂

My 2012 entry!

Each animal was made up of different shape cakes made up using a vanilla sponge cake mix, baked in various size tins. The heads of the sheep and the highland cow are also made from a small round sponge. The head of the hedgehog is sculpted from ready coloured brown fondant incing. I covered the sheep in butter icing and then mini white marshmallows. I covered the hedgehog in giant milk chocolate buttons and the cow in chocolate butter icing piped in a random highland cow like way!

Currently trying to think of an even more exciting entry for February 2013…. any ideas please do share 🙂
