Jenny Jones snowboarding cake

It is half term and the weather has been a bit damp so today we planned to do some baking. This cake has been several days in planning and much looked forward to, so today they made a cake of Jenny Jones snowboarding to her Olympic Bronze medal (which we watched to much cheering here).

Really nice to see them working together so well to make the cake.

Then on to the fun part, making the decorations out of fondant icing. I can say that the blue colour does not wash off hands! Katrine made the icing Jenny Jones and Gregor made the rail and Olympic rings. The both helped to make the Blue Peter boat (they are desperate to win a badge so have sent of the photos to them as well). We had a bit of difficultly getting “Jenny” to stand upright, she is supported by a few cocktails sticks but at least she is still smiling.
