Start off by making your daughter’s favourite flavour cake and if you want to add a little something extra to the batter, use things like fruit puree, Funfetti or sprinkles.

You can bake the cake weeks in advance to cut down on frantic preparations and freeze it in well-wrapped layers. Take it out the day before the party and you’ll notice how much easier it is to decorate with your edible icing image.

If you’re going to be icing your Dora cake, try boiled icing that is always a huge hit with kids. It’s pretty much sweetened meringue with hot sugar syrup. The syrup cooks the eggs, giving the icing a marshmallow flavour and sticky consistency. If you’re pressed for time, simply use pre-made frosting available in most supermarkets to top the cake with.

A Little Candy Fun

You don’t have to make elaborate decorations for your Dora cake or Cinderella cake. The Custom Icing edible image will give the perfect finish to the delicious creation. But if you want to add a little extra, grab some small, colourful lollies, even crush up a few bigger ones and decorate around the edible image. Make rainbow stripes around the outside of the cake or over the Dora cake image. Let your imagination run free.

As for candles, use sparklers to add the wow-factor. Or use a number shaped cookie cutter to very slightly cut the cake’s surface and fill the number indent with sprinkles.
