Peppa Pig Car Cake

Ahem, it’s a little overdue but here is my guide to making a Peppa Pig Car Cake. I made this one using the Little Man’s Peppa Pig Car toy for reference.

I started off with a basic 10 by 12 inch sponge cake which I then shaped into a basic car shape. I also sliced the cake in half and filled with a thin layer of butter cream.

I marked out a square on the top of the cake and hollowed it out to about 1/2 inch.

Next step was to cover entire cake with a layer of butter cream. I then covered the cake with red fondant icing and cut out the middle square.

The middle bit was then covered with a layer of cream coloured fondant icing and I used two strips of fondant to divide the seats and make a back rest. I then made four pig bodies from rolled up fondant. Daddy Pig is green, Mummy Pig is Orange, Peppa Pig is red and George is blue.

I also made four pig heads out of pig pink fondant icing

Then it was time to add the final details and put it all together

I used edible pens for the finer details like the faces on the pigs. I piped the car doors and bonnet with red icing and made the wheels, lights and mirrors out of fondant.

The Little Man was extremely pleased with his cake ­čÖé

Gran Turismo 5 cake

My partner’s brother is always playing Gran Turismo 5 so I chose this as a theme for his birthday cake.

I made  simple racing car from blue fondant starting with a tube like shape bigger at one end than the other. I then flattened the sides. I made a groove along the length of the car at the top and a dip in the middle. Next step was cutting out a strip of blue fondant for the spoiler. I left this to dry out so it would stick on straight.

Using black fondant icing I made four wheels using icing tubes as cutters. The back wheels I made slightly larger than the front. I also left these to dry out.

With a ball of black fondant I made the racing driver helmet the right size to fit in the dip in the car.

Using white fondant icing I made a strip to use as the driver’s visor on his helmet and a stripe to fit in the groove along the top of the car. I also cut out a disk for the car number.

This is what the car looked like when finished:

My next step was to make the logo badge for Gran Turismo 5. I copied the image from the game box. I made a black fondant square and cut out the lettering for the logo from blue and red icing. I used white for the number 5.

The cake was a basic 7inch sponge cake which I filled with buttercream and covered with white fondant. I was really short for time and unable to freeze the cake before shaping, so it did end up a little uneven.

However, the finished cake was happily received by the birthday boy.
