These Peppa, George and Dinosaur cakes were a happy accident! I’d planned to make one big cake for my son’s birthday but the store had only small cake boards, so after a moment of panic I decided to make three smaller cakes. I baked two red velvet cakes in rectangular lasagna dish and cooled them. I Googled for suitable images, traced them onto baking parchment then used a skewer to create an outline through the image onto the cake, then cut out the shapes.

I covered the cakes in butter cream and then in fondant icing which I’d already prepared in the necessary colors. Peppa and George’s arms, legs, cheeks, mouths and eyes are all made from fondant icing, as are Dinosaur’s eyes, arms, legs, teeth and spikes. My son was really excited when he saw the cakes!
