Peppa Pig cake

I need to watch more children’s TV. Whether it’s Dinosaur Train or Peppa the Pig, I need to know more about the current crop of what the kids are watching.

I have to say that little Peppa was a cute theme for a cake. And this cake was a little special. The flavor of the cake was watermelon and it was really an interesting and tasty. I also enjoyed making the buttercream as smooth as possible. Fondant can’t be beat when you have to have a smooth finish but I know most people don’t eat it. I’ve read that the new trend is more rustic cakes that don’t have fondant. This means extra effort for attaining as smooth a finish as possible with the buttercream frosting.

This cake has fondant accents including the trees, “mud”, and of course, Peppa and friends.
