In celebration of the Merlin finale, and the show which has EATEN MY BRAIN (but I'm oddly okay with it), my friend Sara and I created the faces of our favourite slashy boys in cake!
I made Arthur. I wanted to use the blue liquorice allsorts for his beautiful blue eyes, but in the whole bag of sweets there was only one! Which is why Arthur has developed a weird, floppy, indie-boy haircut... The hair is made from jelly snakes, which also helped to provide the stroppy, pouty expression.
That pink thing at the bottom? Well, Sara said I had to make him a sword, but I had limited supplies at my disposal, so I made it out of pink wafers, with a chocolate finger and a pink liquorice allsort for the hilt... And it ended up looking really quite rude. Especially when later on I ate the tip and got icing on my face...
Anyway, here's Merlin! Sara constructed him, using chocolate fingers for hair and yellow allsorts for his eyes (we decided this was because he was doing magic at the time) and pink wafers for those iconic ears! Unfortunately his complexion isn't as creamy and flawless as Arthur's because, well, we were impatient and iced him while he was still hot from the oven!
And here I am proudly showing off my creation... You can tell from my slightly crazed expression exactly what kind of day we were having. I had already consumed a fair amount of Sailor Jerry spiced rum! After this we all tucked in and ATE THEIR FACES whilst watching the episode!
