Thursday was Holly’s third birthday, which meant much of this week was spent scrolling through Pinterest to come up with a cake idea.

She REALLY wanted Peppa Pig, but I REALLY wanted to keep things simple this year. Not like last year’s Cinderella Dolly Varden birthday cake.

So, this is what I came up with:

Peppa Pig birthday cake

Not much to it!

I have to admit, I didn’t really know what cake I was going to create until the cake itself was cooked. Living on the edge, I know!

I’ll do a tutorial for the blog during the week, just with some little tricks I picked up along the way. Plus there’s a few things I’d probably include if I’d had the time (like lollypops or cake pops for birthday balloons).

What do you think?

Now, onto this week’s Aussie Giveaway Linkup…

  1. Fabulous cake Kellie – I attempted fondant Peppa Pig faces earlier in the year, they were a disaster!

    • Thanks Amanda!! I have no idea why I’m so fascinated with fondant, but I just love the stuff!! I could play with it for ages. I think it’s harking back to my Play Doh years. Hey, who am I kidding – I’m still playing with Play Doh! 😉

    CUTE! I love it. Especially love how Peppa has her own cute little cake! Both my kids are huge Peppa fans, its only a matter of time before I have to attempt a Peppa or George cake myself.

    • Hehe! Lynsey, you must check out Pinterest. There are some really simple but effective ideas on there. There’s also some way out ideas too, but I wasn’t game to make it complicated this year!! 🙂

    Cute Cake – I love keeping cakes simple. For Kyle’s 8th Birthday we used “Cake 2 the Rescue” and had a Kombi Van…so easy to do! And its all delivered to your front door – now that is even better 🙂
    With our older two sons we spent crazy hours making cakes, to have them eaten in seconds and now they can’t even remember them!! Funny how it took to have five kids to realise that no matter what the cake is, as long as it looks good and taste great then everyone is happy 🙂
    Happy 3rd Birthday Holly

    • Oh, so true, Lisa. This one went in an instant.
      Mind you, I did have fun making it. I think it’s the creativity side of me that makes me want to go through this every year!
      Although, I do like the idea of the cake being delivered to your door. Genius! 🙂
