Emma Hawkins, mum, marketing guru and wife of Geelong AFL star Tom Hawkins, has created a cake that's stopped the internet!
Emma, who's heavily pregnant and been suffering months of terrible morning sickness, took on the unenviable task of whipping up a Peppa Pig birthday cake for her daughter Belle’s second birthday in a hotel room on Tuesday night!
What started off as a very admirable effort turned to tears though when a day-long car ride the next day lead to Peppa looking like she’d been ‘massacred’.
Emma definitely saw the funny side of it, posting a hilarious message on her Instagram page.
‘Early birthday cake for Belle (Daddy isn’t here tomorrow),’ she wrote. ‘Also 100% not a public submission to the AWW cake book 😳 decorating in a hotel room + full day in the car = massacred style Peppa cake (swipe across for all the inspo you need to achieve this look 😅😅🐷🐷🐷) * also it was unintentional to give Peppa flaming candle tits 😂’
Flaming candle boobs aside, just look at the smile on Belle’s face! It’s clear to see it was a big hit with the gorgeous toddler - and Emma’s thousands of Instagram fans.
Wrote one: ‘Great effort 10/10! #awesomemum. Kids remember the memories not what shop a cake would have come from. Last part of post had me in stitches!🤣🤣🤣’
Added another: ‘I thought the flaming candle tatas were a nice touch! 😂 Excellent cake, mama @emmahawkins_ 👏🏼🐽 happiest of birthdays.. how time flies.’
And a third: ‘I'm a midwife and this Peppa cake reminds me of a placenta 😂😂😂 happy birthday!’
Ha! Well we've all been there - and we love that Emma’s seen the fun side in it. After all, us mommas are all doing the best we can!
