I was inspired by a few cakes I found on line in the Peter Rabbit theme and picked a few things here and there and from my memory reading the Peter Rabbit books to my, now grown, girls when they were little.
What would a Peter Rabbit cake be if there were no Peter Rabbit? So to start I made Peter out of gum paste and gave him his little blue sweater. I then made a little fondant basket to hold his carrots and a little yellow fondant blanket for his picnic. The # 1 was made from fondant as well as the carrots.
And what better flavor to have for a Peter Rabbit theme? well carrot cake of course. Both tiers are our very moist and delicious carrot cake which has no nuts or fruit.....I know but trust me it is delicious.......is filled with a cream cheese filling. Peter's little cottage is done in fondant in a 2D effect with a white picket fence which goes around both bottom and top tiers.
All in all I think the effect worked out beautifully.
Happy 1st Birthday Jax!
