Hootabelle Birthday Cake

You may remember my Hoot cake as posted recently.

My mum came over during the process of my making that cake and watched very keenly how I did it. We had also previously looked at pictures of Hoot & Hootabelle cakes on Pinterest.

My mum is a very organised woman & takes her cakes very very seriously. In the old days she used to enlarge pictures by hand using the grid method, to make them big enough to use as a template. She has also used the grid method to apply the icing to a cake.

She used a printed picture of Hootabelle to make Miss 2's cake and the memory of how I had constructed Hoot. That's it.

I'm still very proud of the Hoot cake I made but there is no doubt my mums Hootabelle is above and beyond. :-)

Squidgy, aka Miss 2, was very excited by the cake and said Hootabelle over and over.

I would just like to note that my mum uses packet cake mixes & premade fondant icing which she dyes herself.
