Dora The Explorer in CAKE!
Here is the latest cake that I made for a sweet little gals 1st birthday! Dora the Explorer! The cake was a double layer White Vanilla Cake dyed pink and blue on the inside. The bottom layer was 10 in. and was used to feed guests. The top layer was a 6 in. cake and was used as a Smash Cake for the birthday gal.
On the top smash cake I piped a Dora face and a Happy Birthday message.
On the bottom layer I pied various Dora characters. I did Swiper and wrote “Swiper No Swiping!”, for Backpack I wrote “Vamonos!”, for Diego I wrote “Go, Diego Go!” and for Boots I wrote “We Can Do It!” There was so much color on the finished cake!
Along with the cake I made a batch of Vanilla Cupcakes. They were each individually frosted with Vanilla Buttercream and then pieced together to make a “Map” of sorts. Various Dora characters were then added on top. It turned out super cute and both the cake and the cupcakes were a hit with both kids and adults alike!
