This cake isn’t what I planned. Not even at all. I had originally planned to do something with balloons and pennants. I’m sure it would’ve been a fun cake, but it just wasn’t inspiring me. My cake sat frosted with a crumb-coat all day, waiting for me to dress it, but I just wasn’t excited about it. I put it in the refrigerator, and I went to bed.
Then, inspiration struck. I wanted to make my heart cake into two halves, two characters, that loved each other. I wanted something unexpected, though. After all, that’s how most relationships are – unexpected and unique. For some reason, I decided I wanted a cactus cake. But what character could hug a cactus? One that’s just as prickly, of course. Which is obviously a hedgehog. <3
