Oh my GLOB! If you haven’t seen Adventure Time on the Cartoon Network – go and watch it immediately.
Its almost impossible to explain. Its a mash-up of Japanese anime and fairy tales, sprinkled with psychedelic magic dust. Its dark and twisted and light and joyful all at the same time. Some of the crazy zany characters include; a walking talking video game called BMO, bugs who dance, an Ice King who kidnaps princesses, bears who party inside the belly of a monster and the main heroes, Jake an elasticated dog, and Finn – a human who all live in the crazy world of OOO.
My favourite character is probably Lumpy Space Princess or LSP. A permanently irritated purple cloud covered in lumps. She’s like the most annoying teenager EVER! Like ‘whatever’! But she’s hilarious and at the end of the day its all about the lumps. I love her – she’s so freakin hot.

For Adventure Time fans, this is my Princess Bubblegum passion-fruit cake with added passion-fruit curd. All topped with pink fairyfloss hair and sprinkled with some crazy glitter for good measure.
