I made a Dorothy the Dinosaur (Wiggles character) cake for my daughter’s 2nd birthday. I baked 3 small cakes, 3 inch, 4 inch and 5 inch rounds. The cake I baked was caramel mud but you could use any firm cake.

Then I assembled the cake sort of like a snowman, the largest cake at the bottom and the smallest at the top, with a little shaping around the edges. I joined the cakes together with butter icing.

I covered the cake in ready coloured green fondant and added a tail, arms and legs. The legs have cake inside them but the arms and tail are just fondant. Then I added yellow dots by rolling out fondant and cutting out small circles. I attached them using a little bit of water.

The hat was just rolled out white fondant in the shape of a free-form circle. I needed to add a lump of fondant under the hat to give it some height. The gloves were added to the end of the arms and roses put in the middle of them.

Everyone loved the cake, most importantly my daughter loved it.
