I love, love, loved making this cake! This was for my son's 5th birthday (party) who told me he wanted a power ranger cake! I have shown you this in stages, as it was quite a big cake! The first picture shows the cake sandwiched together and shaped like a helmet. The second has been covered in a thin layer of buttercream and put aside to dry for a while. Third photo shows the cake covered in blue fondant and smoothed to give it that helmet look, and again left to dry. And finally, the finished Power Ranger! Everything edible, all except for the candles! The words from my son were.......Mummy, I love my Power Ranger Head!!!...................haha!! bless!.........And then we cut the Power Ranger's head open...WHAAAHAHAHAHAA!!!

This collection was made for my sons Schools PTE Fundraising event.
All orange & purple fondant flowers were made in advance to thoroughly dry out, so they will keep they're shape (photo 1 & 2) and the 3rd photo has them all boxed up and ready to go!
- On the far left are black fondant flowers of various sizes and styles, and finished with some cachous/dragees, another experiment.
- The middle picture shows some of the flowers on some cupcakes with buttercream swirls.
- And the third picture shows another variety of the flowers on cupcakes with some buttercream, covered with a blanket of embossed fondant.
