Hamsters in the Forest Cake

Last week my husband's grand uncle turned 90. I decided to make him a birthday cake - just a small cute cake, because I didn't have time to make something bigger and magnificent. To be true, I was also not in the mood of cooking, baking nor creating things - I was just too tired and stressed out by my work... I am glad that Christmas is coming, so I can have a quiet time at home for some time :).





I don't know my husband's grand uncle so well. I only know he's a real family man, still fit even though he's almost a century old and he has a small garden at the back of his house...



So, I decided to make a hamster family in a 'forest'. The hamsters look more like a cross between a fat teddy bear and a fat mouse ;-). The cake was a normal choc-chip butter cake covered with dark chocolate.

  16. Ugh... dying... so cute! And hamsters look cutest when they're fat little blobs anyway. ;) And this may sound a bit silly because of all the detailed flowers you made, but I think I really like the simple roses... they work so well!

  17. @ Mehblog - you're absolutely right, I think the simple roses look better thank the other more 'sophisticated' flowers...!
