Other Ideas

This is one of those cakes you can keep adding to and adding to and in this lesson Paul talks about some of the other ideas for the Peppa Pig cake.

You can add more characters, create a scene from your favourite episode or use elements of the design for completely different themed cakes such as a mountain scene. Paul also talks about how you could achieve a large 3D Peppa Pig cake by adapting the teddy bear tutorial.
