Coolest Wallace and Gromit Cake

Homemade Wallace and Gromit Cake

I made this homemade Wallace and Gromit cake for my son on his 7th birthday. After covering the sponge cake with white sugar paste, I coloured another piece pale blue for the plaque in the centre. I rolled this piece out and cut into a circle which I stuck on to the top of the cake.

I used a photo of Wallace and Gromit as reference and coloured some pieces of sugar paste to match. I wanted to create a 3D effect, so I shaped the characters to make them look as though they were coming out of the cake.

I moulded the separate body parts and assembled them using water and a small paint brush, placing them directly on to the plaque.

To finish off the cake, I piped dots around the edge of the plaque and the bottom edge of the cake. After positioning the seven candles and piping the lettering, my homemade Wallace and Gromit cake was ready for the party!

Coolest Wonder Woman Birthday Cake 2

Homemade Wonder Woman Birthday Cake

My daughter recently turned 3. She had a superhero themed birthday party complete with a wonder woman costume and Wonder Woman birthday cake. I looked at a lot of pictures before I decided to create my own cake.

I used the petal craft brand Topsy Turvy cake pans because the cakes fit together perfectly and you don't have to use dowel rods to hold them together. The cake was chocolate.

The bottom layer I used the Wilton royal blue icing gel to get the same color as the bottom of Wonder Woman's costume. The stars were made of white chocolate.
The top layer I used Wilton red icing gel(food coloring usually just gives you a dark pink color).

The wonder woman logo and the lasso I made out of homemade marshmallow fondant. I used regular yellow food coloring and multicolor marshmallows to get the gold color. I was really happy with the outcome.

Coolest Disney Character Birthday Cake 37

Homemade Disney Character Birthday Cake

Homemade Disney Character Birthday Cake

I made this Disney Character cake for my brother-in-law and niece. I wanted a theme that they would both enjoy. She loves Disney and he works in the movie industry as an animator. I thought Minnie Mouse would be perfect for her, and Fantasia Mickey would be great for him. They loved it and it was the hit of the party!

I used two 9" round cake pans for the base and, for Minnie's ears, I used two glass bowls to give it the rounded effect. I covered the whole thing in fondant, shaping the ears out of it also. I used an ice cream cone, covered in fondant, for Mickey's hat.

I am new at making cakes with fondant. This was the third cake I had ever made and I am very pleased with the result. It was also fun to make!

Coolest Yugioh Birthday Cake 7

Homemade Yugioh Birthday Cake

Homemade Yugioh Birthday Cake

I made this Yugioh birthday cake for my avid Yugi Oh card collecting son. I used a Wilton Sheet Cake pan with 3 cake mixes. I always use a white or butter cake so that icing is easier. (lazy!)

I mixed a small amount of red food coloring into a basic buttercream icing and it created the peach (pink) tint for the skin. I then mixed the remaining colors needed. I drew the cake first on a piece of paper the size of my cake. I then cut it out and laid on my cake that was on my cake board. I used a knife and cut the shape. Then I just basically transferred my drawing on to the cake. He loved it!

Homemade Beyblade Cake and Cupcakes

My son loves Beyblades so I made this Beyblade cake and cupcakes and then bought some edible beyblade cupcake toppers so each kid could pick their favorite beyblade.

My son LOVED the cake and the cupcakes turned out great. I baked 2 8x8 round cakes and one sheet cake to cut out the 'blades'. I frosted with butter cream frosting using the star tip! Easy and cool.

Coolest Yu-Gi-Oh! Birthday Cake 7

Homemade Yu-Gi-Oh! Birthday Cake

Homemade Yu-Gi-Oh! Birthday Cake

I picked a photo of Yugi that I felt I could reasonably recreate on a Yu-Gi-Oh! birthday cake. I iced the cake. Hand sketched the picture into the icing with a toothpick and then outlined with black tube icing. Then filled in the rest with the appropriate color icings.
