I made this cake for a competition. The theme was fairy tales and fantasy, so I was inspired by the tale of Jack and Beanstalk. It would make a great kids' birthday cake or for a fun celebration.

To make this cake you will need a Tiers & Spheres Anti-Gravity Cake Kit, and a leaf-shaped cutter.

Preparation Time: 1 hour 25 minutes

50g jelly beans
500g self-raising white flour
