I have made many treats but I was over the moon when my boyfriends sister asked me if I would make her daughters 3rd birthday cake.
I was really nervous as someone was paying money for what I made so I wanted it to be perfect!
All I was told was to have it, 'Dora the Explorer' themed.
I researched loads and decided to make Royal Icing transfers, and just place them along the edge of the cake. However, as I had not done these before, and me having the worst luck in the world, they broke when I went to remove them!
So from that, I decided just to make the Dora figure, and the monkey figure just out of Sugar Paste icing.
I wasn't entirely happy with the Dora figure, I thought she looked much older then she should.
Overall, I was quite happy with the cake, and so was everyone at the party.
