A Pretty Panda Packed Birthday

At 11pm I started baking this ursidae of a cake! It was herself’s birthday and I needed to make something that would feed the army in the workplace.

I nabbed Nigella Lawson’s divine Malteser cake (which you can’t get online, but can get in Feast) for the recipe and decorated it with buttons (I have an aversion to black food colouring and icing generally, so I had to adapt the black and white colours of the panda!).

I used Ovaltine instead of Horlicks and of course doubled the recipe to ensure I had enough to build the ears and snout.

Hello Panda

It went down a treat.
