Beatrix Potter 5th birthday cake

I was asked to create a birthday cake featuring the two favourite Beatrix Potter characters of birthday girl Caitlin. Peter Rabbit and Jemima Puddleduck were such fun to make!

Figures hand-modelled in a mixture of modelling paste and flower paste; Peter Rabbit is hand-coloured with edible food dusts to give him a more nuanced shade rather than a flat brown colour.

Vanilla madeira cake with vanilla buttercream and raspberry preserve filling.


Thank you very much! Can’t believe it’s taken me so long to register with Cakes Decor, I will be on massive catch up!

Hi Fiona – lovely to see you here on CakesDecor. There are some amazing creations..! Love your Beatrix Potter cake. I’ve been meaning to join for ages too – the lovely Julia Hardy tempted me! Rebecca (Tastebuds) xx


Hi Rebecca! Nice to see you too. I’ve been so slow at getting over here…I find that if I’m not careful I spend far too much time online so I’ve limited the social media platforms that I’ve joined, but have cracked with CakesDecor! Hope you’re well xx

Awww, too cute

You must never limit your challenges, instead you must challenge your limits

Such a sweet cake Fiona – I love Beatrix Potter! It is lovely here on CD – really friendly and supportive. (the only downside for me being that if you comment on someones cake, unless you actually click ‘follow discussion’ you have no idea if they have said something back to you). And that is the only negative as far as I can see. xx
