Peppa Pig Car Cake

When my teen was little she was Peppa Pig mad, but we ended up with at least 8 years of Peppa Pig altogether, thanks to having 3 young children. When the youngest was 3 years old I made him a Peppa Pig Car Cake for his birthday using his toy car as a reference.

It’s a simple cake that anyone could make and it really did please the little ones.

Peppa Pig Car Cake

I started off with a basic 10 by 12 inch madiera sponge cake which I then shaped into a basic car shape. I also sliced the cake in half and filled with a thin layer of butter cream.

I marked out a square on the top of the cake and hollowed it out to about 1/2 inch.

Next step was to cover entire cake with a layer of butter cream. I then covered the cake with red fondant icing and cut out the middle square.

The middle bit was then covered with a layer of cream coloured fondant icing and I used two strips of fondant to divide the seats and make a back rest. I then made four pig bodies from rolled up fondant. Daddy Pig is green, Mummy Pig is Orange, Peppa Pig is red and George is blue.

you can just see the toy car in the background.

I also made four pig heads out of pig pink fondant icing but the photo is a bit rubbish.

Then it was time to add the final details and put it all together

I used edible pens for the finer details like the faces on the pigs. I piped the car doors and bonnet with red icing and made the wheels, lights and mirrors out of fondant.

The Little Man was extremely pleased with his cake 

I’m reviving some of my old cake makes as part of a new series on my blog..

  1. A few years ago my girls would have loved this cake. They were both mad about Peppa Pig. Well done with making the pigs. I thought they were just plastic one’s to start with x

  2. This is just brilliant! Both of my two were Peppa Pig mad as well and would have loved this.
