DS turns 1 this week. Be honest, is this the stuff of nightmares? Will the children at his party be scarred for life?

Dunno about fucked, but certainly looks like it was taken by surprise!

Oh, it's quite sweet. And coconutty. Maybe try the eyes a bit closer to the nose?

Wow! Haha! It did make me laugh, but well done for effort its amazing, use it! A friend of mine made their daughter a princess castle. It looked like a massive pink knob. She loved it, and we laughes about the cake for ages. Was a great party

Maybe put the eyes nearer the nose to lessen the impression they've shot up in abject horror.

The eyes are a little bit scary! I think it's the white? Could you add some buttons or flakes like this to make it look a bit cuter? Don't get me wrong it's definitely good! Not super scary at all.

I agree about moving eyes. Could you also chop some off the back to make it more rounded? And add more chocolate buttons cut in half to make spikes?

MiladyThesaurus Sun 09-Apr-17 10:49:14

Yes. Move the eyes down close to the nose.

You could make some curls or shavings of chocolate and add then to make chocolate spines.

He's amazing!

He does have a bit of a zombie look about him but that might be fixed by adding some little choc chips for pupils in his eyes.

MrsZB Sun 09-Apr-17 10:49:31

The nose is great!

beekeeper17 Sun 09-Apr-17 10:49:35

Agree to moving the eyes forward and adding the buttons and then it will look fab!

Good effort op. Reminds me of the hedgehog cake my mum made years ago for one of my sisters birthdays. We still remember it fondly.

Teabagtits Sun 09-Apr-17 10:50:11

I'm sorry but I laughed. It looks tasty but the hedgehog in the headlights look is brilliant. Can you maybe add some chocolate fingers for spikes and move the eyes closer to the nose?

MrsZB Sun 09-Apr-17 10:50:24

A hedgehog cake is one of my favourites.

Maudlinmaud Sun 09-Apr-17 10:52:42

Jolly I love you. I'm not a baker and this is like something I would produce. Own it star

claritytobeclear Sun 09-Apr-17 10:52:52

It sort of looks a bit more like a rat at the moment. Agree with moving eyes forward and adding something to make it look more spikey.

JustSpeakSense Sun 09-Apr-17 10:52:58

I love your hedgehog!

I agree some flakes would look great!

Topuptheglass Sun 09-Apr-17 10:57:42

It looks fab!

But hedgehogs don't have white eyes. I think that's what's going wrong.

Use Maltesers pushed in for eyes (closer to the nose)

ShowOfHands Sun 09-Apr-17 10:58:58

I made DD a hedgehog cake one year. She looked fucked too. Poor Mrs Tiggywinkle.

Ruhrpott Sun 09-Apr-17 11:00:37

I was going to suggest adding chocolate buttons too.

JollyBobs Sun 09-Apr-17 11:01:23

I have emergency flakes on the shopping list today!

This is the second cake I have ever made in 30 years.

Poor hedgehog looks like it unexpectedly sat on something!

JollyBobs Sun 09-Apr-17 11:03:08

@weddingopinionsplease the first picture you posted is what I was aiming for.....

Topuptheglass Sun 09-Apr-17 11:07:00

Showofhands yours looks great!!

Gingernaut Sun 09-Apr-17 11:09:38

Could the eyes not be black? Or brown?

SleepFreeZone Sun 09-Apr-17 11:09:39

It's just the eyes the make it look a bit startled. Change them and add some buttons and it's great 👍
