-Copied the picture I'd chosen on to the baking paper.
-Made 2 chocolate cakes and cut the picture out of the cakes using the baking paper pic as a guide.
-Mixed up a basic frosting and added blue colouring until I got the right blue and used this great icing stuff (see below!) for the outline. It was so easy to use.
At the end, I mixed up some runny white icing and used a small paint brush to fill in the eye.
All in all, so much easier and less time-consuming than I had expected!
