Mr Tumble Birthday Cake

My friend's little boy is very keen on the TV character Mr Tumble, so he asked me to come up with something for his birthday. I've just finished it this evening ready for tomorrow.

It's been particularly hot and humid this week so far, which presented a challenge when making the figure. Originally his left hand was waving but, even with support, it has gradually wilted and his hair kept falling off almost as fast as I was sticking it on! I got there in the end though and I've learnt a lot along the way. I had thought about putting a star-burst just behind the figure, but came to the conclusion that'd be a bit over the top.
