Burp Charlie burp, it's the only way!

It's a sad time for my sister and a difficult time for her to celebrate her birthday, nevertheless we did the best we could. 

As children we had our fair share of squabbles (she always started it of course) but these days I feel very fortunate to have such a great sister. I'm very proud of her and she deserves a special cake. 

This idea came to me at Christmas during the traditional viewing of Charlie and the Chocolate factory with my sister quoting every word and singing along. It wouldn't be Christmas without it! She is probably the biggest 
Charlie and the Chocolate factory fan in the world so this cake seemed most appropriate:

Based on the scene where Willy Wonka sings "Pure Imagination" this cake includes the chocolate river, lolly pop trees, mushrooms, gummy bears and a little addition from Mr Chris - the flower teacup and saucer. 

Willy Wonka was a little beyond my modelling skills so I featured a cheeky Oompa Loompa instead. His facial expression was very appropriate when he's hands fell off the following day...


A touch of super glue and he now sits happily in his new home on my sister's bookshelf. 

And it would appear my sister is not the only fan, currently this picture has clocked up an amazing 61,924 views on Mr Chris' flicker account.


  1. Hi do you have a step by step on how to make the oompa loompa please

    1. Hi, I'm sorry I don't. I'd love to make one but I won't be able to for a while as I'm traveling for the next couple of months.
