Ho ho ho.
This is Rata’s cake (it was delicious). It’s meant to be the ‘R’ from the movie ‘Rio’, so it is also all feathered. But I also think it looks a bit like a koala.
The icing a joint effort between Louis and I – he watched me do a row of it and could see that it was a two person job. We followed this tutorial. Well, I did. There were a few skirmishes about how best to proceed and a few cries of “why are you doing them so far apart?” and “I don’t understand what you want!” but we managed, as you can see. The best thing about this kind of icing is that if you muck it up you can just spread it all out and start again.
