His mum requested "Something with diggers" and advised me that she had toy diggers at home that she would put away specially for the top of the cake. I didn't tell her that I was going to make them (hoping she would have the toys available if the ones I made didn't turn out). However, I think they turned out pretty cute and so did the birthday boy.
I had not previously baked a madiera cake but decided to try it as have been told it is less crumbly. I don't really think this is true however, it was easy to bake and tasted good.
I hope you enjoy reading my cake blogs, if you do please leave a comment and keep on visiting my website too see updated creations.
