My daughter Irelynn is turning one! She loves to watch Abby Cadabby on Sesame Street so there was her theme. I used the Wilton Abby cake pan. I made the Wilton Buttercream Frosting. I did a larger cake underneath her.
To decorate Abby, I did the outline as directed. I used a 16 size star for her entire body, including her eyes. I added the purple freckles myself. I used a hair tip for the hair instead of the star tip. I put both pink and purple frosting in the bag to get the mix effect. I did bigger stars for her barrettes. Then I added stars around the larger cake to tie it all in. I also used an edible glitter flake on the wings. Hope this helps.
The angle of the camera when the picture was taken makes her look like she's wearing lipstick!! But she's not, it's a straight line frosting and then the stars are indented in. Also, I wrote Happy Birthday along the bottom of the cake in case you can't notice that.
I have twin boy/girl grandchildren and each year I have made cakes that have coordinating characters. This year was an Abby Cadabby Character Birthday Cake and Elmo from Sesame Street. An Elmo pan was easy to find, but I wanted an Abby head to coordinate with his and there wasn't one. I noticed one day at the cake store that they had a carriage pan that I envisioned as an upside down Abby head. I rented the pan and designed the cake from clip-art of the character. Upside down, the wheels became her ponytails and the rest was freehand. The face is made with a star tip, smooth eyes, and the ponytails with the hair/fur tip.
The only thing I would do differently next time is more outlining first. I have made a few cakes before, but am definitely an amateur. I made my own buttercream frosting and used Wilton coloring to get the rich colors. The matching Elmo cake was made from the Wilton pan and the same frosting.
I was asked to make my husband's niece's 1st birthday cake. I am known as the cake lady in my and my husbands family. I always baked cakes but just started specialty cakes almost two years ago. This has really become something I love doing.
I used the Wilton Abby cake pan for the character, and I used a Wilton 16in round cake pan for base. To decorate Abby I used icing which I colored. I piped in outline, then went in between with star to fill in the body. I also took fondant colored it different colors and used a cutter to cut out the stars and flowers shapes. On the 16in round (base) I covered with a larger star tip in vanilla.
Everyone loved it and I got several offers to do other family and friend cakes. I will definitely post all the specialty cakes I’ve done thus far. I love the idea of everyone posting creative ideas. I love coolest homemade cakes.
Just practicing for my stepdaughter's birthday cake. I decide to make her an Abby Cadabby cake with two color cake mix. I made the usual yellow cake recipe but I divided the cake mixture by two and dyed each mixtures, one pink and the other blue. You can also as many colors as you like.
0ne time I made a cake with five colors on it. It's the same technique as the marble cake, only that is the same flavor only dyed. For the decoration I draw on top of a rice paper. I used the basic frosting to cover all the cake with the help of a spatula.
Then I placed the rice cake drawing on top of the frosting covered cake. I outlined all the drawing with the tinted frosting and filled the lines. I used the 2, 6, 27 and 67 tips.
Hope you like the finished look. My family liked it a lot, as you will see.
