Make a Hedgehog Cake in step by step photos…
Spear up to 55 mini marshmallows onto cocktail sticks and put them on a baking tray lined with a baking sheet.
Break up the chocolate bar into a small bowl and melt in the microwave.
Dip each marshmallow in the melted chocolate – remove excess chocolate by twizzling the marshmallow on the side of the pot before putting it back on the tray. Leave to set for at least an hour or until the marshmallows come away without sticking.
Put the Swiss roll on a display plate and cut a slice off the end about 1cm thick.
Cut the piece of Swiss roll into uneven halves (approx 1/3 to 2/3)
Put the the larger half (straight side up again the Swiss roll) on the bottom and the smaller half directly on top. This will be the head/snout of the hedgehog once we’ve iced over it.
Fill the piping bag with the vanilla butter icing/frosting.
Cover the Swiss roll slices which you piled up at one end of the Swiss roll with the butter icing/frosting by piping stars. Start by piping around the bottom and working your way to the top. There is just enough icing/frosting for this so don’t be too generous on your star sizes. Just enough to cover.
Pipe the chocolate icing using the same method and starting from the head all the way down to the tail. Pipe from one side to the other all the way down. Remember to cover the end of the Swiss roll as well.
Remove the chocolate covered marshmallows from the baking sheet and add the marshmallow spikes to the hedgehog’s back.
Use three chocolate buttons to give the hedgehog eyes and a nose before serving.
