This was our first ‘Firefighter’ themed cake and it was a pleasure to make! Adil and Nadrah’s mum wanted two ‘hummingbird’ flavour cakes for the joint party. I used rice krispie treats for the inside of the fire engine, making it all edible. This was a mixture of rice krispies, butter and marshmallows. I shaped it in a rectangle and then covered it with fondant. It worked surprisingly well and tasted pretty yummy! I tried new facial features for the figurine and paid particular attention to the eyes and mouth.
We were also asked to provide some matching cookies and decorations – the big balloons and tassel worked well with the theme colours. A few other items were hired from us too, such as the drinks dispenser, table cloth, wooden tray and cookie jars.
