In an attempt to cut back on fondant-covered childrens cakes, I was tasked to come up with a Peppa Pig concept that covered the cake in buttercream, but still delivering on eye-popping, kid-friendly colors. When decorating with pigs, it’s hard to get that “pig in mud” theme going without making the cake look…..sloppy. Peppa Pig and her family love mud! I didn’t necessarily want to cover this cake in chocolate because too much chocolate/pigs/mud can easily start making the cake look too…sloppy. Overall, I’m VERY happy with the way this came out! Aside from the Peppa Pig family, the flowers, the mini cake, and the little pool of chocolate fondant they are sitting in, the cake is covered in buttercream!
I was told that little Kelsie was very happy with her cake, and everyone loved the chocolate and vanilla goodness waiting for them inside as they cut into it. Happy people all around!
