I have been meaning to write a post about how to make an icing hedgehog since Bob’s birthday. Time has disappeared and it is nearly time to start planning her next birthday!

I made the hedgehog to go on Bob’s woodland fairy birthday cake but Bob enjoyed playing with him so much that he lost his spikes.

I still wanted to share this with you as it is so simple to make and so cute!

You will need:
Regal Icing
Colouring – brown and beige
Chocolate Vermicelli
Black writing icing
Edible glue (I make my own, click here to see how.)
1) Colour a small amount of icing beige and approximately 4 times as much brown.
The amount you colour will depend on how big you want your hedgehog to be.
2) Leave a small amount of brown icing to one side for the nose and roll the rest of the icing into two balls.


3) Work the beige ball into a rounded pyramid shape to make the head.
4) Indent the brown ball with your thumb, add some edible glue and attach the head.


5) Using the black writing icing add 2 dots for eyes.


6) With the leftover brown icing roll a small ball and stick it onto the front of the hedgehogs head. Then start pushing vermicelli into the hedgehogs body.


7) Ta da!


Bob loved making an icing hedgehog too!

    It is so cute!! You do realise if I ever have a kid I am just going to repeat your birthday parties one at a time so I look like I’m a super cool mum too?!
