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 🙂
