Peppa Pig Cake

Peppa Pig Cake

This Peppa Pig cake was made for my darling daughter's 3rd birthday. I made a regular chocolate sponge mix (6 eggs) baked in two 10" x 7" cake tins and filled with chocolate spread then laid with the 10" sides together (10" side to the top).

I downloaded and printed a picture of Peppa from the web and enlarged it to fit the size of the cake. I copied it to tracing paper which I then secured to the cake and cut through with a sharp knife to get the outline of the head and dress (arms, legs, tail and shoes are made of Ready Ice). I found it easier to make and ice the ears separately which were stuck on at the end with more chocolate spread.

I used approx. 1kg of Ready Ice in total. I would estimate that I coloured 750g of the Ready Ice to pale pink, half of which was rolled out to cover the head section and ears. When the icing had been laid over the top section of the cake I used the template to cut off at the point where the head meets the dress. The remaining pale pink icing was divided to make the arms, legs, tail and edging for the head, ears and nose.

Of the small amount left I then added more colouring to make a darker pink for the nostrils and mouth and a then a tiny amount of black to make a darker pink for the cheek. The remaining 250g of icing was used to make the eyes, shoes and dress.

I found it really helpful to keep laying the template over the iced cake for sizing and positioning of the arms, legs, tail, ears, eyes, nostrils, smile and cheek as it helped to keep Peppa's pose and expression the same as the original picture.

It is so hard to find a recipe where you don't have to make about 6 cakes and cut them up! Thanks this is so much simpler to do. I am looking forward to doing this in Feb.

Questions please
by: Annabella

This looks amazing. I really want to make it for my little girl's second birthday but I'm not sure about a couple of things. Were the cake tins rectangles? How long did you cook the cakes for? And did you split each of the two cakes in half and fill them? Thanks!!!

No questions!
by: Annabella

I have just read this again and realised my questions are covered !!

Thank-you ever so much!

My soon to be 2yrs old grandson adores Peppa and his Mummy bought a lovely Peppa cake for his first birthday party last August. However, this year a new baby brother is due just before his second birthday so Nanna is going to attempt this cake. I am hoping it will be a success- the instructions and tips are very clear. Many thanks.
