A lovely cake for any peppa pig fan! I made this for a little boy who was 2 and he totally loved it and clapped in delight when he saw it (I think he thought it was a toy, bless him lol).
Wiltshire, England, UK
22 people made this
- 2 round sponge cakes, cooled and rested (any flavour)
- 1.5kg fondant icing
- various fondant colouring (I like the colour paste)
MethodPrep:1hr ›Cook:2hr ›Extra time:3hr › Ready in:6hr
- Sandwich the cakes together without buttercream to start. Cut 2 sides off to create main car shape. Remove top cake and cut a square out of centre (this will be car inside area). Spread buttercream on lower cake then sandwich the 2 cakes together. Carve the bonnet and boot so a smooth line on cake (can't feel joins).
- Colour your fondant and shape into various pig family members. Secure heads to bodies using wooden skewers cut to size.
- For raised effect place cake on cake drum exactly same size as cake, then place on top of a smaller drum. Then stick to actual display cake drum; your cake should have a floating effect now.
- Colour enough fondant to cover car cake. I used a 10'' (25cm) cake tin and after cutting used just under 1kg to be safe.
- Roll out fondant. Cover cake in buttercream (if cake feels a little unsecure on sides push a couple of skewers cut to fit to secure), then cover with the fondant. Trim around edges and with a flat blunt knife tuck towards the boards.
- Cut slits in top where you cut out seating area in cake then cover with a square of left over fondant to cover the slits.
- With a skewer scribble in bonnet, boot and wing and door lines not forgetting the handle on door.
- Cut out circles then cut into semi circles using left over fondant from car (the red fondant). Cut out some white circles for wheels. You can colour them black but i used edible lustre dust in silver and dusted them once cut.
- Stick wheels to side of car, you can use plain water and a pastry brush for this. Then stick the red semi circles on top of the wheels to get the wheel arches. With a damp skewer gently join by running the damp skewer along join of archs and car.
- Stick white small circles to front for lights and oval red shapes to sides for wing mirrors. I also added small bits of white/silver dusted icing to these to look like mirrors.
I added some green fondant and some blossom to board to give a driving through the countryside look. I hope you have a go. It's hard but fun and so rewarding when it is finished.. GOOD LUCK!!
Mommy pig's eyelashes and daddy pig's glasses were drew on with edible ink pens.

hi kiera, stay away from the oil, it can make fondant tacky also, just use icing sugar and move fondants position when rolling out so dont stick making sure enough icing sugar under it aswell as on top, drape rolled fondant over your roller to cover cake. if dusting ruins the finish of cake, just use a damp clean pastry brush to get rid of icing dusting xx hope it helps , lots more cakes to get ideas from on my website, www.clairescakeswarminster.co.uk-23 Feb 2012
challenging but fantastic to see the childs face light up when shown their special birthday cake-07 Sep 2010
I read up to use veg oil to stop the fondant sticking to hands and work surface but has left my cake with an oily finish! Do you just advise to rub hands and work surfaces in icing sugar?Your cake looks amazing by the way!-07 Feb 2012
Peppa Pig Birthday Cake | Kit Kat Cake
Learn how to make a homemade Peppa Pig Birthday Cake! With simple ingredients and a few steps, you can make a fun and festive Peppa Pig Kit Kat cake complete with all of your favorite characters from the show.
Kids are obsessed with this cute little pig family, and I can see why! They are fun and so adorable. I was more than happy when my little one asked me to make her a Peppa Pig Cake for her birthday.
I decided to make the cake featuring what Peppa and George (her little brother) like to do best: jump in muddy puddles! However, here the muddy puddles are actually delicious chocolate cream cheese frosting. So be sure to read below and make this tasty and simple cake for your little one’s next party.
Did you make this recipe?
This cake does not need sculpting as the cake in the prior method does. You have a fair bit of decorating leeway with this cake.
- Frosting the shape and design of a car across the top of the cake. Use differently colored frosting to denote the car, its features and the background. Features can also be made using candies, etc.
- Use royal icing to cover the cake. Make a road of black royal icing have it curving across the cake. Add a model car on the road either made from sugar paste or similar edible modeling food, or chocolate, or a clean plastic model car, which is removed once the cake is cut.
- Frost the whole cake. Make a border of clean plastic toy cars or foil-wrapped chocolate cars around the cake. When the cake is cut, each guest also gets to keep the car that came with his or her piece of cake.
- Frost the cake. Make a giant number for the child's age and use this as the road. Add cars to the number road, either edible or plastic ones. Include racing flags for a finish line.
How to make a Peppa Pig Cake
I was asked to make a Peppa Pig cake for my little friend James. When his Mum asked me I had no idea who Peppa Pig was. I had to do some research to get up to speed. Thomas the Tank Engine was on high rotationall at my house when my son was little. So I watched a couple of these gorgeous U Tube videos. I can see why kids love the cute little Piggie family and friends. Have a look, they are adorable. The beginning is my favourite. Daddy Pig is such an oinker
I thought rather than just showing you this cake I might make an attempt to explain how you might easily make a Peppa Pig cake if a little someone in your life happens to like Peppa Pig. I usually bake a cake that will last very well out of the fridge. I have used a chocolate cake here that survives out of the fridge for well over a week, is moist and heavy enough to withstand icing and shaping but not as weighty as a mud cake, the recipe follows below.
You don’t have to make a cake like the one above or cover it with plastic icing just use your favourite recipe and slather it in whipped cream if you like. But, if you follow these instructions you will be able to put a Peppa Pig onto any cake at all. It’s simple but you need a couple of things first.
- A roll of plastic ( sugar or fondant) roll out icing in white
- Colours (not liquid. Buy from a specialist cake shop or Spotlight) red, blue, pink
- Pure icing sugar and a sieve
- A rollingpin
- Paper and pencil
- a lined tray
- small piping bag and tube
- soft liquorice for black shoes
Make your cake first and chill. Later cover it with ganache or chocolate buttercream and then chill overnight ready to put your Peppa Pig on top. Even if you are covering your cake with roll out icing buttercream or ganache it first. If you want to cover your cake in plastic roll out icing you will need 1-1 1/2 kg Cake Decorating Solutions sells this. Start by drawing a picture. I am no Picasso so you will be OK to draw too.

How Do You Make A Peppa Pig Cake With Buttercream?
The easiest way to decorate cakes (for non bakers) is to use buttercream. Whilst fondant cakes look amazing, they do require a certain skill level, which you can totally skip over with buttercream.
Just have a couple of bowls of buttercream ready to enable you have to have different colors. It is also best to have more than you need, to ensure that you don’t run out and then struggle to make the exact same color.
Tip: I always pre-purchase a large tub of buttercream for cake decorating. It takes out a lot of time mixing the buttercream together and gives you more time to focus on the more important decorating aspects.
How to make a Peppa Pig cake in 10 easy steps
- 2 x round sponge cakes (homemade or shop bought – it doesn’t matter!)
- 1 x tub chocolate butter icing
- Jam for filling (optional)
- 2 x boxes of Cadbury chocolate fingers
- 1 x pack green fondant icing
- Edible flowers
- Edible glue or water for sticking
- Peppa Pig characters (I bought a family set from eBay)
- Rainbow cake topper (optional)
Peppa Pig Cake Pops – What You’ll Need:
- cake pop sticks
- cake pops shaped into Peppa’s head (picture below)
- light Pink chocolate
- dark(er) pink chocolate
- white chocolate
- black chocolate
- red pear dust and brush
Shaping Peppa’s head is simply just a round cake pop with a cylinder nose. It’s a lot easier than I expected it to be. Make sure you add her ears!
Dip your stick in chocolate and then into Peppa’s head, make sure that cake pop will stay tight because it’s a bit heavy. I used more chocolate to secure it.
Dip Peppa into light pink chocolate, tap off extra chocolate, and let harden. Now, I used dark chocolate cake only because it’s what I had on hand. I suggest using light colored cake when making these because you can clearly see the chocolate cake through the light pink chocolate.
Once that chocolate has set, you can go in with that edible pearl dust (found at local cake supply or craft store) and a brush and give Peppa those rosy cheeks.
Next, go in with the darker pink chocolate and draw on her nose and mouth details. I used a toothpick.
Lastly, take that white and black chocolate and make her eyes. Next time I’ll totally make her eyes a tad larger.
And there you have it…Peppa Pig cake pops!
“Bing bong bing, bing bong boo, bing bong bingly, bungly, boo!”

My Appetizing Life
My daughter LOVES Peppa Pig so it was a no brainier when it was time for her 2nd birthday on what her theme would be. Normally I would buy a store bought cake because lets be real, it’s one less thing to do when throwing a party! But this time I wanted to do something special for her. I’m sure she won’t remember the cake, but hopefully pictures will keep that memory for her. While I was on Pinterest searching for ideas I saw a lot of Peppa Pig cakes that were shaped as a corral as the characters where played in “mud”. It seemed cute and simple so that was the cake I chose to recreate. To be honest this was probably the very first cake I have decorated that felt almost therapeutic for some reason! I took my time and aside from actually baking the cake the steps were fairly easy to follow.
FYI: This blog post isn’t a cake recipe, but rather a diy on decorating a cake. I made this while I was visiting family out of town, so the pictures do not have the best quality because of lighting, however you do get the point on what I needs to be done!
*side note: I don’t have specific measurements, I used 9 in round pans and it took about 4 XL size Kit-Kats. Depending on the size of your cake, the amount of Kit-Kats and sprinkles can be different.
The first part is getting your things ready, you are going to need 2 round cakes (9 in),
1 tub of Chocolate
Frosting, 4-5 XL size Kit-Kat chocolate bars.
It’s not pictured (sorry) but you will also need Green sprinkles, Sugar Flowers (Wilton brand), ribbon and Peppa Pig cartoon character toys.
I made the cake out of a cake mix box and used a store bought tub of frosting, no shame in that! Cake is cake! Right?
Okay, first frost the two layered cake as you normally would. Don’t worry too much about getting the sides frosted perfectly…it can look like a crumb coat and it will be just fine, it will end up getting covered with the chocolate bars. I do suggest making the top look nice! Aside from the “grass”, you do want a nice pile of “mud”.
I highly recommend cutting the Kit-Kat with a large knife. “Breaking a piece of that Kit-Kat bar” can actually leave some rough edges, a knife will give you smoother edges.
Line up the Kit-Kat bars upright and continue around the cake until it is all covered!
Right before adding anything to the top of the cake I made a couple of swirls on top for a nicer “effect”.
Generously add green sprinkles along the edges.
Lastly add your little piggies, flowers and tie a ribbon around the cake. The ribbon will not only make it look prettier but it will help any loose Kit-Kat bars from falling over.
The flowers I used are the Wilton sugar pieces that you can find in a baking aisle. I also bought their dinosaurs because my daughter loves them too and it was perfect since George has a dinosaur too.
This was the final product! I did add a Happy Birthday banner and made cupcakes using a Peppa Pig cupcake kit.
I was rather impressed how great it turned out and by the looks of it everyone else seemed to enjoy it as well.
Updated: Here are links to some of the items that I used from Amazon.
I started off with a basic 10 by 12 inch madiera sponge cake which I then shaped into a basic car shape. I also sliced the cake in half and filled with a thin layer of butter cream.
I marked out a square on the top of the cake and hollowed it out to about 1/2 inch.
Next step was to cover entire cake with a layer of butter cream. I then covered the cake with red fondant icing and cut out the middle square.
The middle bit was then covered with a layer of cream coloured fondant icing and I used two strips of fondant to divide the seats and make a back rest. I then made four pig bodies from rolled up fondant. Daddy Pig is green, Mummy Pig is Orange, Peppa Pig is red and George is blue.
you can just see the toy car in the background.
I also made four pig heads out of pig pink fondant icing but the photo is a bit rubbish.
Then it was time to add the final details and put it all together
I used edible pens for the finer details like the faces on the pigs. I piped the car doors and bonnet with red icing and made the wheels, lights and mirrors out of fondant.
The Little Man was extremely pleased with his cake
I’m reviving some of my old cake makes as part of a new series on my blog..
