I can hardly believe my baby is already 3 now!! I'm so thankful for her and definitely believe that she is a blessing. Parenting can be hard at times (ok, most of the time), but I'm so thankful for the joy and love she fills our lives with. She teaches me so much! We had a birthday party for her last week and for those of you who were wondering, here's how I made her cake.
Dora in the Clouds
I made Dora's face by following the cake recipe and instructions on Nick Jr. I changed a few things, but basically followed the guidelines. I didn't use paste food coloring for her face color. I just mixed the vanilla frosting with some of the chocolate frosting and hot chocolate mix. LoL. I also didn't pipe in her hair. I just smeared it on with a knife and then outlined parts with the light brown face frosting.
The white stuff I made dairy free for a few people who were coming. It was chocolate mini cupcakes frosted with White Mountain frosting (I didn't use the salt or cream of tartar). We just smeared the frosting all over them, which made them blend in nicely. The mini cupcakes were just a chocolate cake recipe I found in my Betty Crocker Cookbook. If you have any questions about the cake, feel free to ask!
