How about this for a cake with a lot of character – you may need a bit of an artistic flair to pull off the finishing touches though.
A video from YouTube chefs Foodoppi shows how to make a leprechaun cake and it could be a perfect end to any St Patrick’s Day meal.
The video goes by very quickly but all the information you need is there – you may need to pause the action more than once.
Once you have all the information you will be ready to make a delicious sponge cake with the obligatory Irish twist of the mischievous leprechaun.
As chef Louise Lennox says in the video description: “What better way to celebrate Paddy’s Day than an Irish leprechaun cake surrounded in shamrocks?”
