Dora the Explorer Cake
It was exactly one month ago that we delivered the standing up sculpted "Ramses" UNC Tar Heel groom's cake. Ramses was big and masculine and ready to kick ass and take names. Last weekend we went in a completely different direction for the standing sculpted cake with Nickelodeon's Dora the Explorer. She was ordered for a little girl's birthday and Rick sculpted her out of our Strawberries Chantilly flavored cake. She may be a super sweet and cute little girl, but Dora is not easy to sculpt. She has a large sized head and a neck, which the head must sit upon. Rick wanted to capture the spirit of Dora and make her look like she's ready to take off on her next adventure! We heard from our client that the birthday girl was totally in awe of her cake and stood there just staring at it when she first saw it. We wish we could have seen her expression!
On the back side of the Dora cake, Rick added her purple backpack which she always brings with her on adventures. Now she's really ready to explore. Totally A-Dora-able!
Aloha, 'til next time!
