Dora The Explorer 5th Birthday Cake!

As the mother of two boys, we don't get into a lot of cutsie stuff around here. It's more about Construction, Monster Trucks, Video Games, Bike Riding, Remote Control Vehicles.... you get the idea. So when I have the opportunity to go all girlie on a cake, I can really get into it.

This is one of those cakes. My client ordered the cake and wanted Pound Cake, Buttercream Filling, and Dora. That's it. No design parameters... and you know I love that! It's so great to be able to search around for inspiration and then come up with a design that is completely unique.

The decor on this cake is mostly fondant with a little buttercream piping. I just love this design. My mind is already racing with different color combination's that could be used to create a completely different look.

Happy Baking!

This cake is SO cute! Are the little flowers made of fondant or gumpaste?

They are fondant flowers made with the little Wilton Plunger.
