Cakes is turning two this week. So, this past weekend, we had her birthday party. She was very specific about they type of cake that she wanted. Which was Dora the Explorer. I began researching the internet, searching for a good Dora the Explorer cake recipe that didn't look too difficult. Because I am not a baker. Not even slightly.
I finally ran across what appeared to be the perfect instructional for a Dora the Explorer cake on the Nick Jr. website. This was going to be the cake I baked for my little Cakes (photo courtesy of the http://www.nickjr.com/):
Unfortunately, this was the cake that I actually baked:
Yes, it was a little creepy. The eyes were a little buggy. The skin was a little ... um ... textured. The nose ... well, there's not a whole lot I can say about the nose. I didn't even bother putting the cowlick in her hair, because it was eerily similar in appearance to a piece of poo. Storebought cake next year? I think so! At least it wasn't as bad as this.
Happy birthday, Cakes!
