Method

1.Position one cake lengthways on the cake board; secure with a little frosting. Secure the remaining cake, crossways, touching the top edge of the first cake with a little frosting.
2.Using a small serrated knife, cut the upper cake to create a funnel shape. Spread frosting over top and sides of cakes.
3.Decorate the bottom edge of the cake with combined choc bits for `dirt’. Using picture as a guide, decorate the cake with spearmint leaves and ladybirds.

EQUIPMENT 20cm x 30cm (8-inch x 12-inch) rectangular cake board We used Tic Tacs to make the ladybird `trail’. Use as many ladybirds as you like to decorate the cake board. Use any critter lollies you can find, sour worms work well, or even use plastic spiders, if you like. If using non-edible decorations, make sure they are removed before serving. If using butter cream instead of the vanilla frosting, you will need one quantity of butter cream.
