|The Queen's corgi dogs - just in time for the Jubilee!|
I'm planning a fairly ambitious bake for the Jubilee weekend (which is also my mum's birthday) but in the meantime thought I would share this with you. I made corgi dog cake balls! And here's how I did it.
Take one madeira cake that you've already baked, and turn into cake crumbs.
Mix with buttercream to make a play-dough type consistency.
Attempt to make cake pops. Fail completely. Discover the balls keep falling off the sticks and eventually give up and decide to do something else with the damn things.
True story... lol!
Roll out some leftover brown-coloured fondant, and cover the cake ball completely.
Look online for pictures of corgi dogs as you can't quite remember what they look like.
Make a nose and central face stripe from white fondant, and ears from the brown fondant.
Assemble like so.
Take chocolate chips you had bought for another recipe, and insert two point-first as the eyes, and another one as the nose.
Repeat as desired. Do you think they look like corgis? They definitely look like dogs!
I'm planning to include these with my main Jubilee bake but in the meantime I am entering them in the Blogging Jubilee Baking Competition hosted by Homemade by Fleur. The competition is sponsored by Appliances Online .The deadline is June 3rd so you still have a few days to get your entries in!
Because this used up leftover fondant, and ingredients I bought for another recipe, and cake that I would have otherwise thrown away as the cake pops failed, I am entering this into Frugal Food Fridays. I am guest hosting the challenge on behalf of Helen from Fuss Free Flavours from now until the end of June.
