Yes I free handed  it. The white icing as hard as I tried would not stay smooth, I was upset about that but as it turned out my niece didn't care.. So it worked out in the end..

Dora looks great. I made a Dora cake for my daughter once, but I decided to take the easy way out and made a scene with Dora toys on the top. Then we had to send the toys back in the big lead paint recall. Ugh! Your cake looks great and no lead paint Smiley

You shouldn't be upset about the icing being absolutely flat\straight.  Having an off set knife helps.  Also if you hold the straight side of your knife level just on the icing and just rotate the cake while spreading the icing you'll find you'll have different results. Having a lazy Susan or Jane (or someone lazy--forgot the name) or a rotating plate, is very handy.  Hope this helps.
