Homemade Boots from Dora Cake

I made this Boots from Dora Cake for my daughter's second birthday. I made about 4 9x13 pans, two small round and a loaf pan of white chocolate cake. I did Boot's torso first by piling the cakes then carving them. I filled the layers with white chocolate icing, then did his head, by using the two small round pans and carving.

The boots I used the loaf cake although I ended up needing more cake and didn't have the time so one of his boots was actually just bread that I squeezed into shape then iced (it worked well, I just made sure no one ate it!). After icing, I covered it all with marshmallow fondant colored with Wiltons colored gel. To finish it off I made Boot's tail with fondant.

This Dora cake was made using the Wilton Dora cake pan. I also made a second cake using a half sheet so I could stack the cake so it would serve more if needed. This was a donated birthday cake for a 4 four year old who loves Dora.

I frosted it using the traditional half shortening half butter recipe found on many websites and cookbooks for decorating. Having made the cake before I knew I wanted to distinguish her skin and hair with the icing and use stars only for her clothing. The hair was piped on using Wilton's 'hair/grass' tip and the skin was piped on using the 'ribbon' tip and then smoothed out. I was pleased with the results.

Coolest Swiper The Fox Birthday Cake 3

Homemade Swiper The Fox Birthday Cake

I started this Swiper The Fox Birthday Cake with a basic single-layer sheet cake (11 x 15), covered with fondant. I printed up a picture of Swiper the Fox from the internet and used it to make a template. Using a pin I poked holes through the template into the fondant to use as a guide.

Then, using a colored image as a guide, I tipped the picture using a #16 tip, with some detail performed using #3 & #1 piping tips. Lettering was accomplished with a Wilton fondant press-in letters and a #3 piping tip. The scalloping around the base was performed using a #21 tip.

I made this Dancing Mexican Dora Cake from the idea in the Wilton cake book, loved the look of fondant but hate the taste to this was so easy to take off the skirt but yet it looked fabulous.

I made the Dora from the regular pan and just changed it slightly (no backpack, change the direction of arms), made a fondant board and name from fondant then made the bracelet, skirt and shoes from fondant. Really quiet easy. My three year old loved it.

Swiper Cake 2

I saw a photo of this Swiper cake, made with the Partysaurus pan, on the site and made it myself.
Swiper is known for being a kleptomaniac, so he is swiping a present, as he was in the other cake.

The friend of my mother's that it was made for (not the 3 year-old birthday girl, but her mom) jumped up and down when she saw it!
