Peppa Pig Fun 

Hey Everyone! 

Hope you’ve all had the best weekend possible! 

My week has been a very busy one in preparation of my neices 1St birthday yesterday! I have had the absolute joy and pleasure of making her 1St birthday cake. A Peppa Pig cake. 

I decided to spread making the cake over several days as the sooner I cover the cake the fresher it will stay. 

What a better way to start by making a chocolate cake! My sister-in-law requested the cake to be shaped as a 1. So I went an bought one last month from Hobby Craft which was £10. 

I baked the cake on Wednesday night ready to cover on Thursday. I find this a lot easier as when I put the icing over the top it has time to set in the perfect place. 

The only thing I found with the cake tin is that I made 2 of them and did it in 4 layers. If I had used just the one cake it wouldn’t have looked 3D enough for the size of the board I used. 

My sister-in-law had sent me a picture of a Peppa Pig cake she had found and I thought I’d use a dark pink for the icing to make the cake stand out more as the baby pink was washed out looking. 

I then added all the extra details to the cake. 

As you can tell I’m a very messy Baker! 

I also made Peppa Pig out of icing, which was a challenge! Especially the hands! 

It took me around 2 hours to get Peppa Pig how I wanted it. One of the highlights of being a perfectionist! 

I added my nieces name on to the cake in baby pink icing and sprayed with silver sparkle to make it stand out. 

I then added the last details to the cake with a few daisy’s around it on the cake board and then cleaned up the cake ready to take to her birthday party. 

I am so proud of my cake and I’m so glad my nieces loved eating it! Haha 

Incase you wondered what we bought for her birthday we got her a George pig weeble from sainsburys which was £4 and a Fisher price mood toy which you spin the face and it changes the mood and makes a sound.That was from tesco for roughly £15. We also paid halves on the cake with her nanna. 

Thanks for reading guys! Hope you liked the cake 🐷

Frantic February 

Hi Everyone! 

We’re finally out of January! Yes, I know I’m a bit late but these past 2 weeks have been hectic for me! I’ve kept pushing my blog back after being so exhausted from big Bakes and being very busy in my full time job. 

Last week I had a challenge of making a two Tier Marvel Cake for somebody. I had an absolute nightmare! 

The cake was chocolate tier and vanilla Sponge tier. 

Baking it was fine, but as you may know I absolutely HATE royal icing!! I always manage to do it though. 

At first, I covered the bottom cake with white icing. That was easy. Then I went to cover the top cake in the blue icing. The first time I covered it the icing ripped and had a huge hole in the back of it. Great. So.. then I did it again with a new pack of blue icing. Same thing happened again! I always use renshaw icing as the colours are prefect. But for the 3rd go I used tesco own new blue icing. It was manageable but still not perfect. 

So then I began decorating over the top. I had to include superman, captain America, spiderman and batman. I found it really tricky using a stencil to cut out little tiny pieces from the superman logo. But I managed it. This cake again, was another one I had never done before. 


Trying to measure and cut the right size logo for the cake was hard too! I needed everything to be as symmetrical as possible. 


I wasn’t 100% happy with the cake but for my first attempt I think I’ve done pretty well. 

I started making cakes for other people because I like seeing other people’s faces when I’m done. Some people you get who don’t really appreciate your time and effort to which knocks your confidence! But I have quite a few people who compliment me for my cakes and that’s what picks me back up again! 

Today I have just finished off 40 Cupcakes (my biggest job yet) for a lovely customers mum. Its their salons 1st anniversary of opening this weekend. My pictures aren’t the best as I have finished them today. 

The little hairdressing Toppers were quite difficult even though I used a mould. Some of them had really thin parts which just kept braking off so I used the ones which kept the best shape. 

The Cupcakes were 2 flavours. Vanilla and Chocolate Fudge. 20 of each. 

I hope you liked my post! 

It’s time for me to chill out ready for overtime tomorrow! Boo 
Thanks for reading everyone! Have a great weekend.
