Peppa Pig Cake

The other day I opened up my Facebook profile to see this amazing Peppa Pig cake made by a friend of mine for her daughter’s 3rd birthday.  Whether you know who Peppa Pig is or not, you can certainly appreciate the cuteness of this cake!!

In case you didn’t know, Peppa Pig is a cheeky little piggy from the UK who lives with her little brother George, Mummy Pig and Daddy Pig.  I can tell I really have your attention at this point!  Did you also know that there is a Peppa Pig world in the UK?  I think this really puts Peppa Pig in the super stardom category!

It is therefore not surprising that Peppa Pig is growing in favour among young children and Peppa Pig theme parties are becoming increasingly popular.  So what type of cake will you need for a Peppa Pig theme party????  Why…. a Peppa Pig cake of course!!

If you would like to get your creative juices working in the kitchen….this is the cake for you!  Read on to find out how to make this amazing Peppa Pig cake.

She assures me that if she can make it, then you can too….so give it a crack and make this awesome Peppa Pig cake!!

Peppa Pig Cake - Buttery Vanilla

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour, 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 250g chopped butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla essence
  • 2 cups (440g) castor sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups (300g) self-raising flour
  • 1/3 cup (40g) custard powder
  • 1 cup (250ml) milk
  • ICING:
  • 125g butter, chopped, at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups sifted icing sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk.
  • DECORATION:
  • Musk Sticks
  • Mint pattie biscuits
  • Marshmallows
  • Smarties
  • Icing pen/s
  • Pink food colouring

Instructions

Grease two deep 23 cm cake pans and line with baking paper. Use one circle and one square.

Combine all the ingredients together in a large bowl using an electric mixer. Beat on low until the ingredients are combined and then increase to medium speed until the mixture is smooth.

Spread the mixture into the prepared pan and bake in a medium heat oven for 1 1/4 hours. (180-190 celcius, 350-375 Fahrenheit or gas mark 4).

Once cooked, stand the cake for 5 minutes before turning onto a wire rack to cool.

Draw separate templates of the head and body according to the size of your cake tins and use these templates to cut around the cake to form the head (round tin) and body (square tin).

Use a tray or a cake board to display the cake.

Please note: You will need to make the recipe with the mixture outlined above TWICE. Once for the square pan and once for the circle pan.

TO MAKE THE ICING:

Beat the butter with an electric mixer until very pale.

Gradually add half the icing sugar and keep beating until all ingredients are combined.

Add the milk and remaining icing sugar, continuing to beat until smooth.

Add your desired food colouring.

TO DECORATE:

Place musk sticks for the arms and legs and cut a mint biscuit in half for the shoes.

Place marshmallows for the eyes and cheek, and use a black icing pen for the pupils. Place a couple of smarties for the nostrils.

Use a pink icing pen to outline the face.

Use a red icing pen to outline the dress and draw the mouth.

If needed use an icing pen to stick down the must sticks and biscuits to the board.

If desired use the smarties to outline your child's age on Pegga Pig's dress.
