I love doing kids birthday cakes. I don't have children myself so I get to learn a lot of new things. New cartoons, new games, it is all very interesting and sometimes a bit mind boggling. This was an order and I loved doing it.
This was the first time that I have covered a cake in two different colours of fondant. The joins on the sides weren't the best but it still turned out well. Once the green and blue were on the cake I hit it with some lustre spray to give it a bit of a glow. The Peppa pig was fairly easy to do. I found a picture online which I printed out in a size I wanted, traced it onto baking paper, cut that out (with a scalpel) and then cut it out in fondant. I prefer to cut my baking paper templates with the scalpel I use for cutting out fondant because it gives a more precise cut. The flowers were done with cutters and then shaped with some tools. The lettering was done with my clikstix cutters, which are fabulous by the way. I loved doing it and the lady who ordered it thought it was gorgeous and on talking with her later she said that her granddaughter was so excited.
Aww that is SO cute! :D I can really imagine how excited her granddaugter would have been!ReplyDelete
