One of our readers made a Dora cake for her daughter's 3rd
She found the pan at a craft store and followed the instructions
included with it. You can get a Dora-shaped pan on eBay (see how below).
Here are some tips she provided:
It helped to bake the boxed cake mix in advance and freeze it for a week first.
I also made all the buttercream icing with a recipe from the Wilton website a
couple days in advance and kept it in the fridge until the night before I needed
to use it.
I set out the cake and icing to thaw before going to bed then iced the cake the
next day and served it the following day.
It turned out great! I've never taken
a decorating class but was really pleased with the results.
