Dora + Ben10 fondant cake

I was given the task to do a birthday cake for my nephew and niece who celebrated their birthday recently. The little sister who turned 2 adores Dora the Explorer whereas the elder brother who turned 4 loves Ben10. My sister in law wanted a cake that features both characters and I quickly took up the challenge and suggested a 2-tier fondant. I never liked to figurines - not at this moment at least and decided to do their faces instead.

So this is the outcome, it took me a day to assemble it. The bottom tier is chocolate mud cake and the top tier is 1234 butter cake. I also took the opportunity to use my cutters and sugar craft accessories that I have collected over the years. It was great fun !!
