My son wanted a Marvin the Martian cake for his 5th birthday so I researched, got some ideas, and took a shot at it. I made two 9x13 cakes, one chocolate and one vanilla. After freezing them, I carved them (with the help of my wonderful husband), stacked them, and gave them a good crumb coating. Then back to the freezer they went for about a day, and then out the day before his party for to cover with fondant.
I made and colored marshmallow fondant a few days prior to covering the cake, and when I needed the fondant, it was ready. Covering the cake wasn't too hard, and I used black icing gel for the details. It turned out pretty good, and he was very happy with it, as was I.
I made this Pinky Dinky Doo cake for my niece for her 3rd birthday. She loves Pinky Dinky Doo so I decieded to tackle the project.
I took a picture from the internet and traced it on Parchment paper and after I put the icing on I copied the picture with tooth picks. Then I free handed the details of her face, hair, dress and socks.
I used fondant for the letters and just added colorful sprinkles to give it a burst of color. She loved this cake and I loved making it for her. I was bummed there were no Pinky cakes on this site to get inspiration from but I am pleased to be the first to submit!
My 9 year-old son is a huge Naruto fan. His favorite character is Sasuke. Naruto cakes are hard to find, and Sasuke cakes are nearly impossible to come by. He loves the cakes on TV shows like "Cake Boss" and innocently asked if I could make something along those lines. I told him I'd give it a shot.
The Sasuke figure on top is made of store bought fondant and gumpaste. The cake is a red velvet cake frosted and filled with buttercream frosting and covered with homemade chocolate marshmallow fondant. The fondant is black and blue marbled and is covered with white marshmallow fondant "lightning bolts" to represent Sauske's chidori.
Comments for Coolest Sasuke from Naruto Birthday Cake 2
I am German and used to live in Georgia for about 3 years, where I ate a lot of beautiful birthday cakes. Now back in Germany I make the typical American birthday cakes for my kids. My niece asked me now for an Indian cake, but I could not find one on this homepage. I came up with the idea of Tiger Lily from Peter Pan and found some pictures on the internet.
The is a sponge cake with crisco/powdered sugar icing. I am always thankful for recipes and tips, even If I have to substitute with German products.
