a peppa pig cake for bella!

I usually avoid making sugar paste sculptures and fondant covered cakes, but when a repeat client and good friend asked for a certain look/theme I just had to say "yes." Plus today's temperature high will be in the mid 80s and to avoid a buttercream meltdown, I had to use fondant.

I had no idea who Peppa Pig was!!! Thankfully a simple Google search inspired me and presented me with all kinds of great ideas.

I started sculpting the tiny birthday cake, cupcakes and beverages before I attempted the little pig family. This is Peppa Pig.

Her little brother George Pig.



I just love 
Daddy Pig's 

My sugar paste skills are definitely rusty. So please don't judge some of my wrinkly imperfections….. 

For each cupcake, I topped them off individually with a sugar paste flower, sun, or cloud.


happy 5th birthday bella!!!
