My daughter Paige is totally in love with Dora so when it came to choosing a theme for her 2nd birthday, Dora was definetly the go. When I have a party I like the whole lot to be in one theme so I went Dora mad.

First we had the Dora cake which I made entirely myself..(no special Dora shaped cake tins were used ). I just jumped on the net and printed out the picture that I wanted to use then blew it up to the size that I needed and used it as a template to cut the cake into shape and I just love how it turned out. Paige absolutely loved it.

Secondly I hand made little Back Pack party bags out of cardboard for all the kids to take home and lastly we had her dad get dressed up as Dora for the day. I made him a paper mache head and brought some very special orange hot pants for him to wear. He definetly looked the part. I must admit he got a few laughs but he looked great.

Coolest Dora Cake 66

Dora Cake

I made this head of Dora cake for my daughter's third birthday. This cake was fairly easy to make.

I made a butter cake in a rectangle baking tin. I made the actual cake two days before and iced it the night before the party.

I cut out the shape of the head from a template I drew freehand. I made a Vienna cream and coloured separate batches with coloured icing paste. The black icing looked okay on the cake but I should have used chocolate as the icing tended to stain some of the children’s hands when they were eating their cake. I used toothpicks to apply the eyes and a knife dipped in hot water to apply the face and large areas.

The Vienna icing does need to be refrigerated but the cake needed to be removed from the fridge an hour or so before the party so it was at room temperature for serving.

Homemade Dora Cake

Homemade Dora Cake

I used my daughter's Dora place mat to trace Dora's face onto wax paper with a marker. It was a little bigger than I had intended for the Dora cake but I just ended up using the whole cake surface.

Then I flipped over the wax paper and followed the outline of the marker with chocolate frosting using a bag and piping tip. I then turned the wax paper over onto the white frosted cake, pressing the chocolate Dora outline onto the surface. From there, I just used a star tip to fill in the various colored areas. I also used some game pieces from Dora's Candyland Adventure to add Boots and Backpack on top.

Overall, I would say the project was quite easy!

Homemade Dora And Deigo Scene Cake

This Dora And Diego Scene Cake was my first ever proper cake! I made it for my son's 4th birthday party who is a huge Dora and Diego fan. Cake was adored by kids and parents alike. And it tasted good.

Trees, Bridge and cars were shop bought toppers.
Vanilla sponge cake made with three layers of sheet cake. Covered in green buttercream (party green - color paste). Royal icing dark green foliage and flowers using supercook designer icing. Waterfall made using blue color paste mixed with icing sugar and some water. Added shimmer lines using shop bought glitter icing writing tubes.

Dora Cake

For my daughter's birthday I made this Dora cake. I used a mold from a Barbie cake but used a Dora doll instead. I used frosting and added red food coloring until I got the pink I wanted.

I frosted over the bodice using a piping bag. For her skirt I spread the frosting very thick and then just spiked the frosting to give a nice effect.

For the edge on the dress I bought sprinkled covered chocolate circles and for the waist I just halved them.

My daughter was very excited and loved her Dora Cake.

This is a great twist on the barbie cake. I love the idea of using a doll/character that does not promote poor body image. This was a really fun way to do Dora! Love it!

Great idea!
