This quite a big bowl. That's quite a lot of cake mixture. Oh the days before we got a kitchen aid...
Two cakes later.
Making the snake out of the cakes.The round cake makes most of the curves, then you just hack away at the square cake until it joins up.
Plus you get a whole lot of spare bits left over.
Decorating the cake board, I bought a couple of different leaf cutters and a few colours of icing - all artistic input goes to Caroline.
Final cake with camouflage icing. Trying to put smooth fondant icing on top of this was never going to happen.
