What you need to know

This sweet treat, designed by DAWN FINNEY, is far less calorific than most party food and is a charming keepsake that will remind you of a special birthday forever. The neat, solid shape is achieved by inserting a circle of cardboard inside before sewing up – make sure you leave long tails after casting off to stitch up with ease. The best thing about making this birthday cake? Zero washing up!
