I know there are a few very talented bakers on WOL and was wondering if any of you do nixers. I'm looking for a Peppa Pig cake for 4 year old cousin. It doesn't have to be big or fancy just be obviously Peppa Pig. How much would you charge for such a cake? Based in Kildare/Dublin area... Thanks!

How much are you looking to pay? I know a woman who'll do sponge cakes for around €30 and chocolate biscuit for €60/€70. Maybe that's too much but I would recommend her. I'm not 100% on prices but I think I'm in the right ball park

I made DS a peppa pig car cake last year and it was very simple! I made two slab sponges (but you could buy these).Sanwiched them together with betty crocker incing, cut a piece out for the seat, covered the sponge with melted strawberry jam and covered with red roll out icing. I used liqorice swirls for the wheels and steering wheel and used DS peppa pig figures ETS I used chocolate sauce for the muddy puddle!

Another option (I know you didn't ask for options, but I'm throwing one in anyway) is to order a Peppa Pig icing cake topper from ebay. That way you can make a cake to the dimension you order. They are very easy work with and look good. ... &_from=R40
