Little Kingdom cake for Ollie

I must admit that I hadn't heard of the Little Kingdom before I made this cake. It is a program on ABC2, which started in 2009. It follows the adventures of Holly, a young fairy princess, and her best friend, Ben the elf.  An enchanting world where elves and fairies live alongside animals and insects, and flowers, which are as tall as their castle.
 The characters were fun to make with their bold expressions and bright colours. I love the cute little lady bug, which they seem to ride around on too.
This birthday cake is a chocolate mud cake with ganache and fondant. The tower and castle were hollow and made in advance so they had time to dry. The cake was made to celebrate Ollie's first birthday. The family were very impressed when they came to pick the cake up!

Happy 1st birthday Ollie!!
