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!
