Have had the book out from the library.The face is made of fondant - the picture on the front of the book is pretty self-explanatory.

And when the book first came out, The Australian Womens' Weeklypublished some of the cakes (with instructions) - you may find it on their website!

Thanks gardie. Im just not sure whether its a normal round cake, with butter icing to stick the marshmellows on and just a fondant circle face!
Thanks, Ill try search the mag.

Yes from memory.Buttercream all over - the fondant will stick to that and then the marshmallows will also.All cakes in the book are easy enough for beginners.

Here are some pix.I read a good hint once for making sheep's wool icing - fondant put through a garlic press comes out in strands.

I managed to get a copy of this out at the library last year, and that cake looked fab!Good luck :)(I made the kiwi one for my little boy last year, and it looked great.)
