Homemade Backyardigans Birthday Cake Idea

I made this Backyardigans Birthday Cake Idea for my son's 3rd birthday because he loves Pablo and the "soccer monster" is one of our favorites! The base cake is a rainbow cake frosted in buttercream with fondant accent clouds (to cover mistakes). Each side is a different color of brightly colored buttercream.

The grass is made with a tip used to make hair. The soccer ball is made in chocolate with Wilton's ball pan covered in fondant pieces. Pablo is shaped rkt and covered in fondant. I had never worked with rkt before and Pablo was much heavier than I anticipated, so the cake has some smashed parts despite my attempt to place dowels. I ended up having to push the base cake and soccer ball back into place a few times and fixing the icing as best I could.

Covered the cake board with blue fondant and tried to make the Happy Birthday in Backyardigans style lettering. Definitely a live and learn type cake! All in all, it turned out okay in the end and the kids loved pulling Pablo apart to eat him!

Backyardigans Cake 6

I started with the green for the grass and the base color for the Backyardigans cake. I used 80 drops of green food color for it. Then I mixed the colors for the main characters, Tyrone 10 red and 6 yellow, to make the orange after I used what I needed I mixed the remaining with more red to do his hair and outlining.

With Austin I used 6 blue and 4 red to make the purple. I then used the remaining and put in more blue to make it darker for the inside of the ears and the outlining.

And with Uniqua I bought a pink icing thing for the face and mixed in red to make it darker and a tiny bit of blue to make the magenta color for the spots. I then made it darker for the outlining. I used plain icing for the eyes and black writing gel for the inner eye

Coolest Uniqua Cake 11

My friend and I made this cake for another friend's daughter's birthday. We baked an 11x15 sheet cake. We used piping gel on wax paper to invert and transfer the image to the cake. We carved and decorated. Tip: add a box of pudding to the cake mix to make it more dense so that it is easier to carve

I made this Backyardigans Birthday cake for my niece's 2nd Birthday. It was a yellow cake with buttercream icing and strawberry filling.

The image was done using a buttercream transfer. She was so excited!

You did such a great job on this cake! Can you please explain the process of using buttercream transfer? Where did the picture come from, how did you copy it to the cake?
