How Emma created BFG in cake form
Published on: 21 Dec 2016
THIS amazing creation won Bromley Heath’s icing queen Emma Richards an award at the Cake International show at the NEC in Birmingham.
Emma made the model of Roald Dah’s BFG from Rice Krispie treats (Rice Krispies and marshmallows) and cake covered in modelling chocolate and fondant. His stubble and eyebrows are made from painted rice noodles.
She said: “Cake International is a bit like the Chelsea Flower Show for cakes and I was really pleased and proud to get a bronze award.
“I chose the BFG as I watched the new film with my kids and thought it was really magical. I decided to make him with the dream tree and Sophie on his shoulder. I'd never made a bust out of cake before but love a challenge!”
It capped a busy end of 2016 for mum-of-three Emma, whose business is called Little Monster Cakes. She was also a key member of the Bromley Heath WI choir Jam Hot, which appeared on the Gareth Malone television show in November.
