The cake was based on a show from the UK called In the Night Garden. These characters are soooo cute - they don't have voices, but seem to squeak and make strange noises.
This cake was a 3-layer lemon cake with vanilla swiss meringue buttercream. All characters were handmade out of sugarpaste - they were quite fun to make.
