Birthday Season again here at #2 – the wee man is 8. He’s a big fan of Club Penguin and a brown puffle cake was requested – phew big sigh of relief – that’ll be a round chocolate cake with a little bread knife sculpting then – easy. The eyes/mouth are made with marzipan ‘cos we don’t like fondant icing and we had some left over from our Christmas cake. I used a crushed Cadbury’s flake to give the hair a little added texture.
The two crochet Puffles were made by me for his Christmas in 2011, they are holding up well given they get played with a lot. In fact they are holding up better than his shop-bought ones – no surprises there.
