This cake was ordered for Toby for his third birthday. When I got this order I was pretty excited as I have an 18 month old daughter Sophie who also loves the Gruffalo so I was familar with the books. The Gruffalo was an interesting character to make. It was important to get the main character right. Once I made the Gruffalo I was able to create a scene with the other characters. I worked from some pictures of scenes from the movie. By all accounts Toby and everyone at the party enjoyed the cake. What a lucky boy to get such a cool cake!
