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 🐷
