I work in the homewares department of a large department store, and this keeps my kitchengeek self well supplied with toys.

So when I saw this:

Now, generally I am not a fan of these jigsaw pans but I immediately knew *EXACTLY* what I wanted to do with it. And then it went on clearance and I paid like three dollars for it. Of course, that was months ago, and it’s been sitting in my cupboard ever since, because, well, time it is lacking.

I actually have a list of cakes I want to make, and most of them end up getting made for a reason, but this one keeps getting pushed down the list because it’s perceivably a Kids Cake, and they’re a bit short on the ground around my place. (This is not Bad Thing)

Anyway, yesterday’s plans fell apart, so I seized the moment and decided to do some justcoz cooking.

I also had a new gluten free cake recipe I wanted to try, so, you know, two birds etc…

So, ingredients:

I was really pleased with how this turned out. Although I had some problems with the skeleton itself, so I used the elephant sculpting method* which seems to have worked.
