Make a Dora Birthday CakeEasy directions for making a Dora birthday cake:
Bake a sheet cake the size that you need.
Ice the sheet cake in white icing using a cake spatula. Smooth the icing out. Let it set at least 20 minutes.
Next, with food color spray (sometimes called color mist) spray the bottom portion of the cake for your background. Let that dry.
You can use the icing filled bag and round tip, size #5 and draw Dora and Boots on the top of the cake or you can use the parchment paper transfer method found in our Birthday Cake Design Tips and Techniques.
You will use star tip, size #14 to do all the fill in
Dora’s eyes are black and white with a highlight dot in white on the black pupil. Next, fill in her mouth with red icing.
Now make a tan color icing for her skin and fill in all her skin areas (face, arms, tummy and legs),
Her backpack is light purple. Her shirt is pink. Her shorts are orange. Her bracelet and socks are yellow. Her hair is black. Her hat is blue with red dots and her shoes are white.
Boots face and hands are pink. His eyes are white with a black dot in the upper corner. His tummy and tail end are yellow. His body is blue and his boots are red.
Now do all the outline work in dark brown icing.
Next, fill in the piñata using dark blue, yellow, red, pink, light blue and brown icing.
Next, do the balloons in blue, purple and red. Put a highlight curve on the round side of the balloons.
Use purple icing to do the lines for the balloon strings.
Make extra lines for the confetti. Make lines and dots with red, yellow, green and blue icing using the star tip.
With white icing and star tip, size #32, make a shell border on the top and bottom edges of the cake.
With red icing and round tip, size #5, write a message
on the cake board. See another Dora
