Dora & Diego Birthday Cake

Tuesday, 30 April 2013

E celebrated her third birthday on April 27th. For weeks she has been reminding me that she wants a 'Dora and Diego cake' and so a Dora & Diego birthday cake is what she would get!

She is a BIG fan of Dora the Explorer & Go Diego Go (this year anyway, last year it was a Peppa Pig birthday cake she wanted!), and I wanted to try and incorporate both of them in to the cake in some way. I was really busy all week leading up to E's big day and so after hiring a number three cake tin from a local shop, I gave it to my sister for her to bake for me because I simply didn't have the time to bake it AND decorate it. My sister L baked a regular vanilla sponge cake, as well as a gluten & wheat free version for me so that I could partake in the celebrations!

I brought the cakes home and set about decorating the regular one ready for E. I was up until 2am Saturday morning, but her little face was more than worth it! It did get to a point where I was too tired to carry on, and so I didn't manage to make a Dora figure to go with Diego for the cake, but instead made backpack and map with some stars to represent Dora.

She DID ask where Dora was (of course!) but E was thrilled with the end result and I am pleased that I was able to make her happy and give her what she wanted for her special day. I really enjoy making birthday cakes for the kids, that is the ONE thing I always make sure that I do for them and will do for as long as I am able to. It's only something little, but it means a lot to me to do that for them. I wonder what E will challenge me to next year!
