Exploring new talents

We went to a birthday party yesterday for a little friend of Connor's who turns 3 tomorrow, her mum works full time so asked me if I could make the cake for her. I like making the cakes for my kids birthdays so I thought, why not??? One Dora the Eplorer cake coming up.
I thought about using coloured mazipan but as it was a kids cake I wasn't sure they would like it so instead I covered the cake in icing to give it a sticky base and then traced out the Dora shape and used coloured sprinkles to fill it in and black writing icing gel to do the outline.

I think it turned out pretty good and Felicity's mum and dad were both very pleased with it.
