My daughter is Dora mad. I saw all the pictures of the Dora the Explorer cakes here and decided I would do something a bit different. I started by making two 8″ round cakes, cut them and stuck them to look a bit like a mountain.

I covered the cake and cake board with green sugar paste icing and then covered it with coconut which I coloured green to look like grass. I made the flowers using a flower punch, and decided to add the tree, bridge using more coloured sugar paste. To make the bridge walk way I used two lolly sticks. I cut out star shapes and put the on wires on top of the mountain to look like explorer stars. Lastly I made Boots and Dora again with sugar paste.

Most of the design was based on a play set my daughter has. She is now coming up to 4 and wants another Dora cake.
