I made this Peppa Pig Birthday Cake for my daughter’s 4th birthday. I found a picture of Peppa Pig on the ABC website and blew it up. Then I made a rectangular butter cake and by accident a much thinner mud cake. I used the mud cake for the ears and boots and used the butter cake for the body.
I made a large quantity of butter cream icing and tinted it with one drop of pink food colouring for the face, tail, arms and ears. Next I added another drop of colouring for the piping around the face. I tinted it slightly again and iced around a ‘tic tac’ biscuit for the spot on her cheek. I then added more colouring to turn her dress a raspberry colour and piped her mouth.
Her eyes are white icing with a M&M for each pupil. Finally I tinted another smaller quantity of icing yellow for her boots. I found it easier to cut out the ears and boots separately from the mud cake mixture.
