I followed a recipe from the Great British Bake Off Showstoppers Book to make this Chocolate Truffle Cake. It was a birthday cake for Adam's one year old Goddaughter Isla hence the cute giraffe (yes that's what it is!) and single candle. Unfortunately as it was so hot and humid when I made the cake the ganache icing didn't set and the giraffe slumped so he was a bit stumpy! It was my first go at making fondant figures so I won't be too hard on myself! I would recommend the online instructions I followed (see link) as they were really easy to follow. Despite the issues I think that the birthday girl liked the cake which is the most important thing!
