  • For my husband's birthday cake he requested a chocolate cake decorated with hedgehogs. So this was what I created from just four ingredients.

Ingredients

  • Madeleines (individual French style butter cakes)
  • Slivered almonds
  • Melted chocolate
  • Candy eyes

Preparation

  1. Poke the almonds into the cakes, leaving a space at one end for the head.
  2. Melted the chocolate. I prefer to use a microwave for this, as there is no chance of water droplets forming in the bowl. Just microwave it for 15-20 second bursts, stirring between each burst. When the chocolate has almost melted, keep stirring until fully melted.
  3. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the cakes, using a new paintbrush to get into all the nooks and crannies.
  4. Place the eyes and left the hedgehogs to dry.
  5. If desired, you could also add a touch of black icing for a nose.
