praja's a{dora}ble birthday

Praja's mom asked me to make a Dora birthday cake for her 5th birthday party today.  I was a little nervous because it was my first attempt at making a character cake that people are supposed to recognize and I know from other art projects that these things usually go one of two ways... they're a huge hit or a major flop.  Just google "Dora birthday cake" like I did for inspiration and you'll see exactly what I'm talking about!

Praja's cake is a strawberry 10" cake (yum) with white buttercream filling and icing.  All of the decorations are in gumpaste and fondant.

My favorite part is the fact that it imitates Dora's actual logo.  I like the little Nick Jr. logo turned into "She's 5!".

I had so much fun making it and am really excited about how it turned out!  Happy birthday miss Praja.  You are loved!
