Canmore's Kake by Darci is famous for her elegant wedding cakes. Darci's sugar flowers are works of art that could pass for the real thing. Not only do her cakes look gorgeous but they are the best tasting cakes as well. I personally am in love with Darci's clever whimsical cakes. Her sense of humour and skill is always sure to delight with her playful cakes. I asked Darci to create a cake that I could surprise my Mum with for Mother's Day. I told her about 7 things that my Mum loves and asked her to create something that she thought would work in cake form from that. My Mum grew up with hedgehogs in the garden and has always loved them. When I showed up to pick up the cake I had no idea what Darci had chosen to make. I was beyond thrilled when she pulled this tiny adorable hedgehog cake out of the fridge. There is so much work and detail in this cake that the photos really don't do it justice. It was so adorable my Mum didn't want to cut into it. When we did finally decide to try a piece of the chocolate cake we all agreed it was the best chocolate cake we've ever tasted. The body of the cake was a 3 layer chocolate cake with icing in-between and the face of the hedgehog included chocolate cake pops. A perfectly moist not too sweet flavourful cake.
