Baby boy building blocks celebration cake

With the birth of a baby boy, I gladly accepted the commission of a novelty cake to celebrate! I couldn’t resist using my new cutter set of tiny feet, and of course, lots of blue sugarpaste!

The sponge is chocolate with seriously chocolatey buttercream (nothing less than Green & Blacks cocoa powder). I desperately wanted to try making a little fondant train and teddy bear which were in the latest cake book I’d bought, not bad for a first attempt if I say so myself. The letters ‘B’ ‘O’ and ‘Y’ were cut out by hand from chocolate flavour fondant as I wanted the lettering to really stand out.

Congratulations to Laura and Keith on the arrival of baby Peter 🙂
