I made this Dora 2nd Birthday Cake for my granddaughter’s 2nd birthday. Dora the Explorer is her favorite show so of course that is what I had to do for her birthday. The top tier is a 8″ butter cake with raspberry filling and butter cream icing and the bottom tier is a 10″ chocolate cake with chocolate butter cream icing.
I covered the cake board and both tiers in fondant. All the decorations are made of fondant. I used cutters and impression mats to make the flowers, tree leaves, bushes and stars. The barn, sun, mountain, cloud, Tico’s car and 2 are hand made. I used a clay extruder to make the rainbow and the vines. The letters were made with FMM Tappits.
Dora’s friends I got with a book. They are smaller(average about 1″ to 1 1/2″) then the play set figures. The Dora and Boots on top are from a play set. This cake was a labor of love for my darling granddaughter. I have about 25 hours of work in this cake. Thanks for Looking!!!
