Novelty cakes

Once in a while, I will make a novelty cake for a special occasion, usually one of my adorable nieces or nephews' birthdays.  Whilst I absolutely love the creativity such cakes allow, I find that there is always a level of sacrifice in the taste of the cake, after all, other than little children, how many people actually enjoy eating the copious amounts of sugarpaste or fondant icing required for such works of art?

The length of time it takes me to make novelty cakes (on average two days) is the other reason I have become rather selective about who I make these for, so if I've made one for you, count yourself as one of the chosen ones!  If I've not (yet) made one for you, I hope you will settle for being able to peruse some of my novelty cakes in the gallery below.
