My daughter asked for a Peppa Pig cake last year for her second birthday. This was the result. A Victoria sponge cake with butter cream filling. I can remember my mum making me a cake set out like a teatime table full of little cakes and a cute tea set. So this was the inspiration.
The piggies were made from rice crispy treats mixing marshmallows and rice crispies. It would have cost a fortune to make them out of the shop bought variety. It is a very pliable medium to work with and then you cover it with fondant and build whatever you like from there. The only bit that was not edible was the chairs! I did attempt it but I decided foam board was safer, plus I still have the chairs.
The tea set was made from petal paste that allows for a little more detail as my first attempt in fondant was eaten as I rejected it! I painted all the cutlery with silver petal dust. Made a tiny Swiss roll and cut it in to slices, a larger cake with one slice on a plate followed by tiny cupcakes and a plate of strawberries. The good thing about this cake was on the run up to my daughter’s party I made all my bits for the table in the evenings and the same for the the Peppa Pig figures. So then the final job was to make the cake and ice it then assemble.
This was a very enjoyable cake to make and I had many positive comments.
Hope you like it
