Yesterday our friend Tammie flew over from Australia to visit everyone and, of course, we saw it as a great ‘hoppertunity’ to create this adorable kangaroo party cake! We entertained ideas from Moomins to luggage cakes before settling on having the cake topper be a hoppy little ‘roo.
The cake itself is a lovely pink lemonade flavour; perfect for spring! Inside are layers of natural lemon extract infused cake filled with a generous amount of home made raspberry jam. We then smothered the cake in raspberry buttercream and added fun rainbow sprinkles!
This cake was also a belated birthday offering for Tammie so we whipped it up with a little birthday party theme too. We popped a colourful little party hat atop of our fondant ‘roo as well as a brightly coloured blossom nestled in her pouch.
