Talented Westgate cake-maker Nicola Bradshaw has made one of her amazing creations to help celebrate the fifth anniversary of the Screamland scare mazes at Dreamland.
The 2ft cake in the shape of a terrifying Screamland clown was made using 7 kilos of fondant, 1 kilo modelling chocolate, and more than 10 kilos of cake.
It took a week to build, and two days to ice, hand paint and air brush.
Nicola, who runs Little Brown Fairy Cakes, was commissioned to produce the replica of Screamland’s famous horror clown Punchinello riding a Dreamland dodgem – all made out of chocolate cake.
The cake was unveiled yesterday (October 1) with Kent-based singer and Screamland fan Jack Rose getting the first peek (and taste) of the cake and a special behind the scenes look at the Screamland sets.
Dreamland CEO Eddie Kemsley said: “Screamland is all about delivering the biggest chills and the biggest wow factor – this cake absolutely took our breath away, it was the perfect Screamland tribute. A few staff members were too scared to get close to it, until we started serving up the cake itself!
“We promise plenty more creepy surprises and culinary delights during Screamland and Café Terror this October. See you there – if you dare.”
Nicola previously hit the limelight for amazing cake creations made at her Westgate bungalow – including a 6ft BFG (Big Friendly Giant) which went on show the prestigious Cake International show in November 2018
The former Thanet College interior design student began her business, Little Brown Fairy Cake, some seven years ago after being prompted to find a use for her mum’s baking equipment..
