This is just a few pics of the process of the Candy Crush cake. It really helped to roll out the coloured icing to dry the day before. All I had to do was measure up the cake, then cut out exactly what I needed to cover the sides and roof.
I did the same for the characters as I was aiming to stand them up supported by a triangle wedge of flat icing at the back. Painting the characters was the most time consuming, but enjoyable part.
All in all.....a very enjoyable cake despite a 2 day deadline
.....They are all painted on with edible food colouring paste. It's a bit of a pain, but once you've got the right mix
of diluted colour, it's really effective
