    Thanks so much for this ‘how to’ video. Just made this for my 8 year old and she is so happy!

    Would it be too much if you formatted it like a typical recipe? It would make reading it much easier as well as measuring on the go, which is how I tend to do it. Also maybe include precise measurements of the decorative ingredients that you used for when you made the cake?

    2. Rewe frei von which contains potato starch, cornstarch, corn flour, rice flour and guar gum;
    3. Bauckhof MehlMix (for cake) which contains cornstarch, rice flour, whole grain millet flour, locust bean gum and wholemeal rice flour;
    4. 3PAULY Helle Backmischung which contains rice flour, pre-gelatinised rice flour, potato starch and corn flour;

    THANK YOU for the post and video – we took it as an inspiration to make a similar cake, but added pigs and a lava river. (see pic below) I added you on Patreon as a thank you <3

    • Absolutely amazing Karen, well done! And thanks for the support ?

      • Hello,
        How did you do the lava please?

  13. Hi Ann, the website you put down for the ice cube tray does not work. I was wondering what size the cubes are. I hope you have a good day!

    • Hi Kera, Thanks for letting me know I have updated it, from memory they were 1cm cubes

  14. Hi Ann, I’ve just bought the template and I wanted to ask about the size of the paper when printing – I’m guessing A4? Thanks.

    • Hi Katrina, yes you can use A4 … but ensure that your printer is set to print at 100%. It will then print over several pages that you simply tape together in the correct size for the cake 🙂 Have fun
