  1. Happy Birthday to Caden who was 1 a few weeks ago.  His mum got in touch with me to order a birthday cake for his party and wanted something that he would instantly recognise and make his face light up with joy.  After a brief chat we agreed on a 3D novelty cake in the shape of Timmy the Sheep from the kids TV series Timmy Time.  

    For those that are not familiar with kids TV, Timmy is a spin off TV series from Shaun the Sheep who appears in Wallace & Gromit made by Aardman Animation.  I love Wallace and Gromit so it was an absolute joy to be asked to make a cake like this.

    Timmy was made up of 3 chocolate cakes for his body and 1 and a half chocolate cakes for his head.  He was approximately 12 inches tall.  When I started the process of putting the cakes together it was just like any other cake...I felt no particular emotion.  But as soon as I started to get his features formed and put together my heart warmed.  

    Upon finishing Timmy I wrapped him up and paused as I turned the lights out on a long evening of forming his woolly coat.  His face just beamed at me and I actual felt quite sad that I was going to have to hand him over tomorrow.

    Despite being attached to him I realised how much joy Caden would get and that he would feel just as much love for his cake as I did.  His mum and dad were delighted when they collected Timmy.

    So here he is...
