Torta del Dora

My friend Christina’s daughter Ella is turning 4 soon. And Christina was looking at Dora cakes for Ella’s party. She found this onetquinndorasm that she liked. But custom cakes can be pricey. I looked at it and thought, maybe I could do that. So this afternoon Christina baked up the cakes and I went to her house to decorate them. I haven’t made a cake like this in years, and I need some more practice before Ella’s birthday and the real cake, but it’s not too shabby I think.

And we skipped the big leaves in favor of the little palm trees. The real cake will be on a cake board that will continue the river into a pond with more gators. I better whip up some icing for practice!

  1. Shanny — what a FABULOUS job! I think the guys at Charm City Cakes might even be impressed. 🙂 (If you don’t know what Charm City Cakes is… well, just know that was a Serious Compliment.)
