Vegetable Patch Scarecrow Cake
There was a Scarecrow Competition at the local farmer’s market(at Overton Farm) last week and since I had no idea(or desire) to make an actual scarecrow, I decided to make a cake instead!
There's no real recipe for this cake and I cheated as much as I could i.e bought a mini scarecrow lol
The cake itself was a plain vanilla cake (6oz) that was filled with a lemon buttercream and covered with chocolate ganache. The soil was made with chocolate biscuits that were blitzed in the food processor and the fence is made from Chocolate Orange Matchmakers (I'm not sure if you get Matchmakers outside the UK).
I did make the little vegetables. This is my second time using fondant and I must say, I was really surprised anything looked like vegetables at all!
