If you have ever had a chance to look at a Peppa pig cake then you will know how good it tastes! Many people are of the opinion that Peppa pig cakes are the best in terms of taste and are a favourite with children. In fact, most of them are served in schools and nurseries on a daily basis and are especially liked by Peppas.
Peppa is such a popular character that there's even a Peppa pig world in the UK where children can learn about the life of this particular character. Of course, Peppas are not actually pigs, so what is so special about this particular food? Well, it's easy to explain, it's basically a tasty pancake but one which has been baked to look as much like a pig as possible.
Why do people like Peppa so much? It could be because they look so cute, it could be because they are such a fun animal, or it could be because they are just adorable. Whatever the reason is, people love their Peppas and it is a pleasure to go to a birthday party in their honour. So what makes a perfect Peppa pig cake?
The first thing to look for when trying to find the perfect Peppa pig cake is the flavourings. Obviously, if you were going to have a Peppa pig cake then you don't want to have it with ingredients such as eggs, butter and vanilla as these could spoil the taste of your cake. However, if you're trying to serve a chocolate cake then you can use cocoa powder and other flavourings. If you're using vanilla flavoured icing then you might want to add some chocolate flavour to your cake as well.
When cooking up your Peppa pig cake, keep the size of the cake down. You don't want it to become too big, or you may end up with an unimpressive-looking mess. It is also important that you make sure you don't overfill the cake as the cake will get too soft and fall apart.
Peppa pig cakes can range from traditional and boring to naughty and creative. You can get a cake shaped like a vehicle, a train, a piggy bank, a hamster, a house, a pirate ship or even one shaped like a teddy bear. You can also get a decorated cake with pea soup, cheese and biscuits on top which you can fill with your favourite flavour of pudding and decorated with glitter or icing.
As far as decorating goes, it all comes down to what you want the cake to look like and what style you want. If you are serving a traditional cake then you might want to opt for a plain cake and leave the rest of the cake decorating to the icing and filling. However, if you want something more creative then you may wish to try making your own Peppa pig designs or add your own personal touches such as stickers and designs on the cake.
Once you have made your cake, make sure you take time to decorate it properly and get your kids involved as you won't want to end up getting bored! They will love to help you get the cake looking its best!
There are a few other great way to serve your cake and this means it won't just be left on the table for the adults. For instance, if you are serving your cake with hamsters then you can have their picture printed on the cake or put them in miniature hamsters on top of the cake so the kids can see their faces every now and again. For the children, the picture will allow them to interact with their cake.
For the adults who are eating the cake, make sure that they can tell when there is a bite of hamster in their food. A traditional hamster cake is normally served with fresh fruit but if you are serving something different then you could serve a hamster cake topped with cream cheese and fresh fruit.
There are many other ways you can serve your Peppa pig cake and it's up to you whether you serve it on its own or alongside hamsters. This way, it will look great in your kitchen but it will still be a fantastic surprise for the guests to come to visit.
