Summer Swimmer Cake

Okay, I have to apologise in advance for inundating my blog with foodie stuff right now. (On Friday I posted a Taco Salad we made for the After School Party salad competition - and won!)  But, hey, it's high season for school events (4 days of term left to go - hooray!!!) - and this cake we've just made to take into DD9's class tomorrow is just too cute not to share! ;D


DD9 and I got the idea from familyfun.com (they have lots of summer cakes here).  It's one of my absolute favourite websites for crafts, recipes and games.  They even have a video for the snorkeler cake, showing exactly how to make it.

We used shop-bought cake layers and used the Danish sweets we had to hand.

We used liquorice for the hair, marshmallows/M+Ms for the eyes,
biscuit for the nose and 'shoe lace' liquorice for the mouth
It took about 15 minutes to assemble - including the time to dig out the snorkel set and give it a rinse (yep, there was still sand on it from last year...). And the clear up was nice and easy too! 

Bon appétit!

Hope you have a marvelous Monday! :)
