Two weeks ago it was my Granddad's (well, Pop's!) birthday. My Mum made him a yummy Hummingbird cake with banana and pineapple in it and I made a cake topper to go on it.
My Grandad loves his garden and growing vegetables. At Christmas we often have tasty new potatoes fresh out of his garden and me and my sister used to climb over the carrots, etc to get to the peas and eat them straight out of the pods!
I was so happy with how this came out. Making a standing fondant person is hard work! He has strategically placed toothpicks to help him stand up. It probably took me 3 hours to make the whole thing. It was worth it, my Grandad loved it and took a picture of it on his camera too!
Have you ever had a play with fondant icing? Would anyone like any tips? I have an entire cake-sized container full of different coloured fondant at home!
