Do you sell this cake? No, just for fun Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake A "Gruffy"gradad had recently celebrated his 70th birthday. I was asked to prepared this cake with a Gruffalo on a rowing boat. I was really pleased with the result and I loved every single bit, duck and hand painted background included! What advice would you give someone starting this project? I prepared the Gruffalo cake topper, ducks, rowing boat, leaves and flowers few days in advance with sugarpaste and gumpaste. I also prepared the background by hand painting a sheet of gumpaste.
