To make this Donald Duck Birthday Cake I bought a Donald Duck pan on Ebay. It was made in the 1970's by Wilson. There were a few people selling this pan on Ebay for various prices. I managed to find it for $12. I also bought the Donald Duck birthday candle online.

I greased the pan well and put one chocolate cake mix in. It took longer to bake than a normal, round chocolate cake, about 31 minutes. After it was completely cool, I iced it all over with white icing. Even though the design of the face showed on the pan, when I iced it, the icing covered up the facial characteristics. To fix this, I held the empty cake pan next to me as I lightly copied the designs as best I could using a toothpick.

I bought tubes of red, orange, pink, blue and black icing to make the design. I used store bought icing tops to pipe on the designs and smoothed them out as needed with a knife. I also found Mickey Mouse Clubhouse themed cards, balloons and cups.

It was very easy to make, only took about an hour to decorate, and turned out pretty cute. I surrounded it with some Mickey Mouse Clubhouse toys and cut-outs that I bought at the local party store.

Coolest Dragonball Z Cake 2

Homemade Dragonball Z Cake

I think this character is Gohan from the Dragonball Z show/game. My son loves these characters and requested that I make this Dragonball Z cake for his 9th birthday.

I first found a coloring page that he liked and made a simplified line drawing of it on separate piece of paper. I baked a box cake in a 9 by 13 inch pan and crumb coated it. I then made flesh colored icing and approximated where the face would be and just smeared a blob on the cake.

From that point I outlined Gohan with black icing. It's going to look sloppy for a little bit but you will be icing over any imperfections. I filled in the outline with the appropriate colors. Don't worry if you go outside the lines you can re-ice the lines in black later. The sides were looking a little rough and I was running out of the colored icing so I just iced them in chocolate and pressed in nonpariel sprinkles.

My son loved this, especially the brass knuckles with his name on it.

Homemade Doc McStuffins and Lambie Birthday Cake

I searched every where for cake ideas for my daughter's 3rd birthday. She wanted a Doc McStuffins birthday, so for the 1st time I created 2 cakes for her birthday without any pictures or suggestions from online.

I started with 2 9 inch round cakes for Doc and 2 8 inch round cakes for Lambie. I frosted and stacked the 2 layers of each cake. I trimmed the Doc cake to make her chin and I added 3 mini cupcakes stacked up on each side of the Lambie cake for her ears. Then I crumb coated both cakes and froze for several hours.

I frosted Lambie with white Wilton frosting and then frosted her face and ears with the pink. Her bow is made with colored fondant.

I frosted Doc with chocolate frosting, then I colored the chocolate frosting with black and decorated her hair. Her braids are made of black fondant.

My daughter was more than thrilled with her 2 special cakes.
