Ruby's "Boots" Cake (Dora)





My gorgeous niece Ruby turned 2 today. She requested a "Boots" cake. For those of you without children or kiddos older than 5, Boots is a character from Dora The Explorer. I myself had to do some research!

Happy birthday sweet Ruby xxx

This is precious! Great job!

Oh my! Did you sculpt Boots yourself? That cake looks absolutely amazing. My daughter had to settle for a homemade one-bowl chocolate cake! Nothing so gorgeous and elaborate!

Thank you :)

Yes I made everything on the cake and everything is edible.

You are amazing! Very inspiring! Would like to know if you paint the cardboard or is that edible? I notice they are similar size but different colors.

No time for tutorials at the moment :)

the cake is so cute that i squealed like a little girl when i came across your blog! : )

i was wondering if the fondant/gumpaste models (ex: mushrooms) were dried before you adhered them to the cake? did you use royal icing to glue them on?
