Dora the Explorer Cake

Dora the Explorer Cake

I made this Dora the Explorer cake for my cousin's daughter.Inspiration for this cake came from the Tinkerbell cakes, which I found on this site.

I used the Wilton wonder mold for Dora's dress. Cake was vanilla flavor. The bottom half of Dora was wrapped in saran wrap. I tinted pink and purple buttercream icing and used tip #104.

The bottom cake was decorated with a star tip (took me some time to cover the whole thing). The flowers are made of white chocolate (used the Dancing Daisy Flower Lollipop Mold). Made the flowers 2 days in advance (the flowers set pretty fast if placed in the freezer for a couple minutes, so they can even be made the same day). Cake was made of a bottom layer of vanilla and a top layer of strawberry and a strawberry filling.

I baked the cakes in advance. I had to freeze them (party was changed to a different date). So for anyone who has not frozen cakes, just make sure you wrap them (undecorated) with saran wrap and place in the freezer. To defrost just set them at room temperature for at least 4-5 hours. Cakes still looked and tasted fresh.

The kids loved the cake!!

I'm doing a Dora theme for my daughter's first birthday in September and I totally fell in love with this cake! Was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me and I would pay you for it of course since you live in Homestead like myself? thanks and please let me know.

I found the doll at Walmart. It was a scented, rag-doll type Dora. There were only 2 left when I went so I guess got lucky :)

I apologize for the comment of the person who considered me to make the cake :( I didn't think anyone would comment so never checked the comments (didn't get any notifications).

I was wondering if you could email me the detail on how you did this. My daughter is turning 4 Sept 2 and this would be great. She is a huge Dora fan. Email is

What size cake pans did you use for the bottom layers. Did you have to use any other reinforcement besides the cake separator? I am going to try this cake for my daughter's 2nd birthday. If it looks like your's I am sure it will be a hit!

I am planning a Dora party in the next week!!!

Hello! I am hoping to hear a response back I am having a party on Nov. 14 for my niece's 2nd birthday party.

Popular cake

Hi! I did a Dora dolly cake last week. My client actually sent me the links to your page and asked me to make a "Dora doll cake just like this one!" I also had such a hard time finding a doll for my cake. I'm in Australia and while Dora is popular, the doll range we have here is not that extensive. I had to settle with a doll wearing a green skiv and try to incorporate her into a pink and purple dress. :S Not the easiest of tasks! But she loved your design of Dora on a stand on a garden so i gave her my version. Her daughter loved it. Phew! Thanks for posting this pick. It inspires us to be creative!
