The Dora cake that I had made was the first birthday cake I had ever made. My daughter who was having her third birthday, had asked me to please make her cake. I did buy the box cake mix and also the already made icing.

I started by baking the cake and cup cakes the night before. When they were done baking I wrapped them tight, and decorated them the next day. I added green icing color to the icing, and began icing the entire cake, after that I put a blue river through the middle with blue sparkle icing in a tube. I then used a grass tip and outlined the cake and the river.

I applied the palm trees and Dora & her friends, and the cake was complete.
