Peppa pig board

Hi all, I know this is probably a ridiculous question but I am a beginner and taking on a challenge that is Paul’s peppa pig cake! The cake is placed off centre, has Paul iced the board first and placed cakes on top or has he draped sugarpaste over the cakes to reach the board as shown in some of the earlier Tutorials? If so, how is this achieved as past tutorials have shown cakes placed centrally. Thank you in advance!

Hi natalie_kingsmill, it’s not a ridiculous question at all! You could in fact ice the board either way, whatever makes you feel most comfortable. I’ve made this cake too, and when I did it, I draped the sugarpaste over the top of the cake, I just cut my hole in the sugarpaste off centre, other than that it was exactly the same procedure as normal!

Thank you very much. I think I’ll stick with icing the entire board first, it was a slight disaster last time I attempted the other method!
