3 months of house work has meant no cake blogging, some time for a catch up!!
For anyone who has watched Guardians of the Galaxy will probably have also fallen in love with Groot! When I was asked to make a Groot themed cake I was very happy to say yes!
I wanted to keep the cake design simple and decided to cover it in blue icing with stars, however instead of cutting out stars and sticking them on I decided to try spray painting them using edible spray paint. I set up a spray area using a cardboard box as you will find when using these sprays that it does get everywhere!
I cut out a circle of paper with stars cut out of it and placed it on top of the cake, with a coller placed around the cake with more stars cut out of it. I then placed the cake in the spray area and sprayed away! It turned out ok for the first go. I somehow may need to get the paper a little tighter around the cake to sharpen up the stars but I was really happy with how it turned out.
I had so much fun modelling Groot out of icing and since the cake has all been eaten Groot has sat in the birthday boys fridge so he can be seen everytime they open it for something!
