It’s been a while since I did any sugarcrafting so when the film company behind kids’ animated film Justin and the Knights of Valour asked me to celebrate the film coming out on DVD this week, the gauntlet was well and truly thrown down. I don’t know how this movie crept under my radar first time round, it’s stuffed with top actors and fun characters. I decided to base a set of cupcakes on the characters on the DVD artwork. I worked on each of the designs in stages, topping the cake bases with complimenting shades of sugar paste, mixing up that tricky flesh colour and stamping out faces each with slightly different shapes. Our hero, Justin, voiced by Freddie Highmore (Charlie & the Chocolate Factory and more to the point, one of my all time favourite films, Ridley Scott’s A Good Year ).
