You may not need this right now if you have little ones but this is a mere glimpse into the future.

You will need several tonnes of white fondant / sugarpaste or ready coloured packs available from Wilton. Start the project several weeks ahead of time to allow the figurine to dry thoroughly.

Start with the head, roll until smooth and mount on a stick.

Add features and details.

Shape body torso and hands / gloves.

Roll out lower body and divide into legs.

Mould the shoes.

Add each additional part with sugar glue [take a small amount of white fondant and add a few drops of boiled water until the required consistency is achieved.

Leave figure out of direct sunlight to dry, preferably hidden to maintain the surprise factor.

Pop on the cake, light the candles, step back and admire the view of unencumbered freefall delight.

Why bother? Because sometimes speechless really is priceless.

A selection of random cakes as it’s too tricky to get them all in the right order.

Now all the fun stuff is over and we’ve graduated to boring old grown up cakes.

Here’s the recipe for the Peppermint Ice frosting underneath:-

Peppermint Buttercream Frosting
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
4-5 cups powdered [Icing] sugar, sifted
1/4 cup milk
1/8 teaspoon all natural peppermint extract

Beat butter until creamy, scrape bowl.
Add 4 cups of sifted powdered, milk, and peppermint extract, beat until combined.

Taste and add more peppermint extract until it tastes strong or weak enough. And yes, you’re quite right, it’s vile, tastes just like toothpaste.
