I was asked to make a Mr Tumble Birthday Cake. I was given no specifics apart from Mr Tumble had to appear on the cake somewhere. Mr Tumble is from a kids TV programme, I had no idea who he was so Google had to help me out here.
The cake was a single tier vanilla sponge filled with a vanilla buttercream and raspberry jam. The cake was then covered with a yellow fondant icing
I went with a surprise feature on this cake with Mr Tumble jumping out the middle of the cake. I made Mr Tumble from fondant icing and put him together around a week in advance and let him dry out. After folding out all the icing from the centre of the cake I placed Mr Tumble in the middle, secured with wire and added lots of different fondant colour balls around him. I finished the cake with a 1cm blue ribbon round the bottom of the cake.
