Dora the Explorer and Boots Jungle Waterfall Cake

For the birthday party of a Dora the Explorer fan we made this two tier specialty fondant cake to deliver to Somerset NJ. The bottom tier is red velvet, cream cheese and white chocolate filling, and the top tier has chocolate fudge cake with Oreo cookie cream.

A waterfall cascades down the cake, a large gum paste palm tree and jungle foliage provide the perfect backdrop for a sculpted Dora the Explorer figurine and her sidekick Boots. You can't see it in this view, but the backpack of course has a great big smile!


  1. Great looking cake and love your characters and the waterfall!

  2. Thanks! Believe it or not, this design is so popular we delivered another one today. But always fun to make, and we made matching cupcakes with the "map", "backpack", red boots and Swiper! Will post those another day.

  3. love this! I'm looking to steal your waterfall technique for my niece's Dora cake...can you tell me how you made the froth at the bottom? Thanks!
