Ben and Holly Cake – Jelly Flood on the Moon

Ben and Holly Cake Jelly Flood on the Moon

On Tuesday, gorgeous boy turned four. He is absolutely obsessed with Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom, and so he requested a birthday cake made to look like ‘a jelly flood on the moon’. This was no small task but, knowing how delighted he would be, I set to work in order to create the Ben and Holly cake of his dreams.

I also used buttercream icing. You can find the recipe we used here:

I think it turned out pretty well! Unfortunately, I didn’t notice that the camera stopping working when I put the grey fondant onto the cake, in case some were wondering why that part is missing!
