Nursery Rhyme and Rock Cake is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a lovely cake to make and if you change the wording it is so versatile and can be used for any occasion. The different designs on each tier of the cake help to create the depth of the design and give it more of a 3-D element. I do find it helps to make the frosting deeper on the lower level to make it stand out more and then decrease the amount for the middle and then again for the top tier as when it is just the basic sponge the isn't a lot of variation in depth. I would definately recommend anyone of any skill level trying this cake as i am only a relative beginner and found the results brilliant.
