Cake Fairy Tales

Life's better with cake and a sprinkle of fairy dust

Go go Power Rangers


My sister’s little rascals celebrate their 3rd and 5th birthdays together this week. At first, I thought we could placate them with just their two favourite rangers, pink and blue Samurais. But, no no, the greedy little buggers wanted all FIVE samurais.

My sister wanted to buy the figurines and just put them on the cake, but no, no, I’m a big subscriber of the philosophy that cake, especially those given to children should be to our best, almost entirely edible.  Non-edibles, such as hidden internal support, should be made known in advance to the person serving the cake. Cocktail sticks are a definite no-no in cakes served to children, as they can do serious damage if swallowed. I use dry spaghetti to give the figures support and for toppers and signs, I make sure to use large flat popsicle sticks or coffee stirrers, instead of cocktail sticks.

So I rolled out the fondant and proceeded to make all five samurais out of sugarpaste. It was hard to make them stand on their own, but I soon found the trick was to give them very big boots. and stick a flat oval piece of fondant on the soles so the figures were more stable.

The party was a blast, albeit all the screaming gave me an early headache. Two dozen three- and five-year-olds on a sugar high in an enclosed room with a play area is just a bit too much for me to handle.
