Last week we partied in the park for Cherry’s 5th birthday and this week we share how we made that gorgeous My Little Pony cake with a few simple steps!
Elle’s Cake Hack #1
Bake your cake layers in advance so they are cooled and ready to stack. We alternated with chocolate and vanilla packet mix cakes
Elle’s Cake Hack #2
Cover your cake tray with two overlapping sheets of baking paper. You’ll then be easily able to pull the sheets apart for a neat presentation. You’re welcome!

Whip store bought butter cream to fluff it up and make a little go a long way

Sprinkle candies in between the layers for a fun surprise

Flip the top cake upsidedown for a smooth, flat edge

Elle’s Cake Hack #10
Make chocolate shards to top your cake! They’re easier to make than your think!
Elle’s Crazy Coloured Chocolate Shards
– Melt white chocolate melts in 3 small containers in the microwave
– Add food colouring (oil or powder works best with chocolate)
– Spoon the coloured blobs next to eachother on baking paper
– Use a chopstick to swirl the colours together
– Sprinkle candies, edible confetti, pearls, bananas, eyeballs… whatever you like!
– Cool in fridge for 15 minutes until set
– Smash it up or slice even shards
Elle’s Cake Hack #11
Melt equal parts of white chocolate and heavy cream, with a few drops of food dye, to drip yummy ganache all over and help stick your decorations on!
