Last week, one of my Internet Marketing peeps had a birthday. She's a total geek for Joss Whedon, so my original plan was to make a cake having to do with him. Then one of my other work peeps suggested making a hedgehog cake since she has one named Nom Nom. Genius!
I looked for some ideas online, but most of the cakes weren't very good. Until I came across one that used almonds for the spikes. Double genius!
Here's my little hedgehog:
The "spikes" took forever to put on the cake. Good thing this was a small cake!
