Giovanni's 1st Birthday Cake

Made for a little boy's 1st birthday, this cake was themed on the much loved Peter Rabbit cartoon character.
It was a combination madeira of our heavenly Belgian chocolate and ever-so-sumptuous red velvet flavours.

The figure 1 cake was filled and crumb-coated with rich almond-flavoured buttercream and covered with fondant.
It was made to mimick a garden, complete with chocolate carrots and fondant cabbages. Peter rabbit himself, the fence post, as well as shovel are all fondant products; while the grass was piped out of green-tinted buttercream. All yummily edible, of course.

While this cake came in a combination of chocolate and red velvet, see here for other available flavours.
Here's wishing Giovanni a happy birthday.
