    Oh my gosh! You are so talented with these cakes. I'm planning a small Wiggles party for my daughter's second birthday next weekend. I had planned to just do a regular square cake and put some Wiggles figurines which I bought on top. Now I kind of want to make a Dorothy cake. How did you do it? Did you enlarge a picture of Dorothy and just cut it to suit that? It looks really impressive.

      Thank you so much! I've added a couple of photos above showing the Dorothy mask that I used for the design, and how I cut the cake to shape. (It was the easiest Dorothy template I could find, most of the others looked too tricky). I covered the whole cake and cake board in the green fondant, and then added the extra details (including her white hat) on top. I'm so glad you like it! A big happy birthday to your daughter for next weekend, I'm sure she'll love her cake whichever way you decide to go. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Hi me again. ๐Ÿ™‚ I actually used a large roasting pan which is about 34cm x 27cm x 6cm internally. (I think it's this one http://www.scanpan.com.au/products/view/742/roast…. But I'm sure you could use any roasting pan that's approximately this size. A slightly smaller size pan would just make a slightly higher cake. The cake does rise in the oven and dome in the middle, but it flattens out again once it's cooled. x

    Hi, this sounds like a great recipe but I'm wondering how it holds up after a three day delay, if you wait to ganache and then wait another day to put on the fondant. Does it still taste ok?

      So glad you liked it! I add coffee when it's for adults too – delicious! This recipe is still my favourite. We've made it about a dozen times now, and it's never failed – at least, not yet! ๐Ÿ™‚
