Say hello to this adorable little guy! Paul has delivered cuteness in abundance with this Pufferfish Cake.
Perfect for animal lovers big and small - and particularly those with a fondness for the sea-  the Pufferfish Cake is ideal for most types of celebration. Could anyone actually bring themselves to cut it though..? That's the question!
In this tutorial, you'll learn how to carve cake to various shapes, work with ganache, use sugarpaste to build facial features, work with edible paint to create lovely realistic tones and so much more! This cake is perfect for an intermediate cake designer or a beginner looking for a new challenge, and is a great cake to add to your resume.

We'd love to see your take on the Pufferfish Cake - so make sure you share your snaps with us on our Facebook page.
