When one has the opportunity to create ever cake that one desires, there is only one logical decision that one could possibly choose to take – to create a Godzilla. The cake itself is essentially a sticky toffee pudding, with green coloured butter-cream to add a reptilian feel.
Soak the dates in a bowl with the hot water and bicarbonate of soda, this will help soften them up. Whilst the dates are soaking, mix the butter and sugar together in a separate bowl.bNext add the eggs to the butter and sugar. Slowly add the flour to the butter, eggs and sugar mix.bOnce all the flour has been added, drain the dates and add to the mix.
Now pour into a cake tin and cook in oven at around 160°C/350°F/gas mark 4 for around 20-30 minutes or until golden
Construction of the cake is the most challenging part, once you’ve let the cake cool down (so it’s not too hot to handle) you can begin cutting it into the shapes necessary to create the Godzilla.
For the body I used a large rectangular piece and for the legs I stacked circular pieces together. The head was then biggest challenge, but some handy skewers can help add structural stability to you creation ensuring that Godzilla will reign supreme. Add icing and decorations to create a truly fearful cake.
