This was what I ended up making everyone. She is a seamstress, a professional children's photographer and a book lover - plus she loves 70s fabric (hence the colours).You may not be able to see, but one of the books on top is Anne of Green Gables (the other two are one she wrote and another of her favourites).   Thnaks for all of your suggestions...
Scrumdiddlycakes, I would love to see your cake. Sounds wonderful - if you find a photo, point me in the right direction. :)

Does it require a Sillhouette/Cricut?  I am assuming that it is made from either modelling chocolate or strengthened fondant?   Any help will be so very gratefully received, Amelia
Hi there!   The recipe on this site: http://www.inspired-by-chocolate-and-cakes.com/chocolate-cake.html is my go-to recipe for all celebration cakes that I make and it is egg free.    It is really fantastic, like a mud cake and it lasts for days and days without getting dry.    I posted this and then realised I had misread your original question! Sorry, dead brain today. She *does* do a white chocolate version which is just as nice which might...
