This week I decided to make a Peter Rabbit cake.
I love plain cakes and I love Peter Rabbit. The simple lines are very elegant so I decided to keep it as plain as possible.
I baked double barrel Victoria sponge for the first tier an chocolate cake for the second. Cakes were gluten free. Recipe you can find further down on the blog.
They were then filled and covered with vanilla butter cream. I used all butter buttercream recipe:
1kg icing sugar
2tsp vanilla extract
2-3 tbsp water
Beat butter and vanilla, add half of icing sugar. Beat for further a few minutes. Add rest of icing sugar and beat for approximately 5min on medium. Add water if required and beat until mixed.
For the rabbit I uses Satin ice gumpaste and here is the tutorial:
