As you may have guessed this cake was for a 3rd Birthday. The birthday boy was a fan of the children's TV programme 'Numberjacks' - so a big 3 was put on the top. This was made out of icing and was surprisingly more difficult to shape than I expected! It wasn't until the eyes and nose went on that it actually looked like the character.
To make the little Numberjacks I used my usual number cutters and put eyes on the icing. This was fiddly to do but not as bad as if I decided to shape them all too! The balls around the side of the cake match the colours of the 10 Numberjacks characters.
