When was the last time you had a peppa pig cake? This particular cartoon character and her friends make great birthday gifts, but I bet your kids don't have one. They may have seen it on television, but it's not something they've tried yet.
So, how to make a Peppa Pig cake? It's very easy and makes a great treat for any young lady. You can get the basic recipe from many different websites online. In fact, you could make this cake with almost any recipe or mix you enjoy. Used classic white fondant recipe which use for creating those favorite favorites such as Chocolate Toffee Apple Cake.
The key is to start off with a nice round cake pan. You'll want to grease it so the icing doesn't stick to it, but also make sure it's not too thin. You want to make sure you've got enough excess so the cake doesn't shrink.
Once you've greased the cake pan, you're ready to start off with the fun little one's birthday present! Using a pastry bag or a simple pastry circle, pipe in the eye designs, funny faces, and whatever else you might fancy onto the cake. If you're doing a number of little ones, this can take a while, so take your time and make sure you get each design right!
After that, it's all about food coloring. You can find food coloring in the colors you need, but if your child hasn't had their hair colored yet, use the brown tint for now. Get a few boxes of the food coloring and mix it together in a bowl. Once you have that mixture mixed well, you just need to spoon in the icing, a little at a time, until you have it on a smooth surface.
Once you have the icing on the cake, use the fondant icing to cover it. Fondant icing doesn't need to be thick, it can be thin, depending on how you wish to cover the cake. Just remember to be careful when using it. It's easy to burn yourself if you don't watch out. The fondant icing makes a great base for the other decorations on the cake, such as the pink frosting, which is applied using a spatula. Pink frosting goes on first and then blue, before white or light pink.
Next, you will want to cut the pink hearts out of the cake. These should be placed on top of the eyes. Use a small circular saw to cut out the heart shapes. The ears can be made from the icing, as well. Cut these, and then add them to the top and bottom of the cake.
You will next need to do the final decoration. To make this easy steps with a plain cake, all you need are sponge, non-stick spray, mixing stick, and a rubber cake topper. With this cake, you will want to start by putting the sponge on the plate, then put on the spray. Then put the stick into the middle of the cake, and start to roll it out until it has completely covered the entire cake.
Put the icing on the sides, and then add the Pinkie Pie toppers. Light pink icing should be added around the edges and also sprinkle in some more icing sugar if you wish to make the ears look a little more realistic. Then add the cake topper, and you have an easy Peppa Pig cake topper.
After you have decorated your cake using the Pinkie Pie toppers, you will need to add the rest of the ingredients. For starters, you will need three quarters of a cup of butter, enough to cover the entire cake. Next, you will need approximately half a cup of sour cream, and about one tablespoon of vanilla extract. You will also need approximately two cups of powdered sugar. Mix all of your ingredients together thoroughly using a mixing stick.
When it comes time to spread the batter, make sure to work in small batches. This means that you may want to put in a little at a time. Once the cakes are baked, you can frost them using a butter icing brush. You will want to make sure that your icing is smooth. You can use a mixture of milk and sour cream to make sure that the cake is not too smooth, or you can choose to make your own blue fondant.
When you are finished with your cake, you can decorate it however you like. You can add Blueberries, or even put in some Chocolate Peanuts. If you decide to go with the blue fondant, then you may want to also place a few drops of blue food coloring into the water in your sprinkler. You will be able to find this mixture at your local party store.
