Growing up, apart from the Flintstones and the Jetsons, Smurfs were my favourite cartoons. I loved all the little blue people in their blue Smurf villages.
So, when Benji's mum asked me to make a Smurf cake, I was over the moon. Little did I know that a movie is just about to be released and what is old is new again! Benji has always loved the Smurfs and has quite the collection.
So after being given a few of his favourite to work from, the following Smurf house and characters took shape.
One of my FAVOURITE cakes - I think the colour, the design, the characters - everything. Alot of fun to make and to also see Benji's expression!
The cake is lemon poppyseed cake with white chocolate ganache.
All decorations and completely handmade and edible. The only inedible part is the chimney, which is covered styrofoam.

Papa Smurf with an ever watchful eye!
Unsure the name of this Smurf - however I like to think of him as Baker Smurf :P (yes there was one!)
