Homemade Bakugan Birthday Cake

My son Jaxon wanted a Bakugan party for his 6th birthday. After tossing around a few ideas this Bakugan Birthday Cake was what I came up with. I used the back of the cards for the idea. There are 29 cupcakes in this cake. It helps if you can get all of the cupcakes the same size.

I used white icing in the middle, yellow icing around the white and orange icing around the edge. Then I dragged the knife through the three colors to made it look like the burst of light. I photocopied the card to the size I wanted on the cake so it was easier to pipe the words and symbol on. I found a round container the right size for the circle and then just went from there.

Then I piped black around the edge. The kids loved it and the parents couldn't believe that I actually made it. We had the party at the movie theater so after the kids watched Bakugan on the big screen this was a great ending to a great party.

Wow, more info!

My son's Bakugan party is this coming Sunday (in 3 days) and I love your cake. I have a few questions though. How thick does the icing need to be in order to smear it to blend the colors together? Did you make your own icing. If so, can I have the recipe? Doesn't the icing fall down between cupcakes and make holes in the design? How long did this take you do do?

How did you get the icing from falling through the cupcakes? The questions from "Jodi" were good ones. Can you repost your response.
Thank you

great job!

Hope this helps

Sorry if this is too late for the party, I don't know when the comments were actually posted. I used the buttercream icing recipe from Wilton.It has to be fairly thick to cover the cupcakes maybe 1/2" then there shouldn't be any problem with the icing falling.

Fantastic Cake!!

Forgot to look how old this posting is. I love this cake! I really like how you stayed true to the Bakugan image but put your own spin on it. Did you trace the actual Bakugan image on the cake with piping gel (or toothpick) and then rewrite with red buttercream? It looks so good and the cupcake idea was really creative.

My son loves Bakugan characters and his birthday was approaching so I decided to have Bakugan as the theme of his birthday party and decided that I will do all the cakes and pastries for his birthday. I started buying all the ingredients for the Bakugan Birthday Cakes and equipment required for the cakes 1 week before the birthday party, after that I had to look into the shapes, designs & colors of the Bakugan characters.

Two days before the birthday I baked the cakes. I did 2 flavors, chocolate and vanilla and left them to cool all night long. On the 2nd day I started cutting the cakes according to the characters shapes. After that I started with coloring the fondant sugar and preparing the butter cream and fillings (chocolate chips butter cream). After that I started to cover the parts of the cakes with the butter cream and covering them with the fondant sugar and some of them I added the filling and assembling them to shapes of Bakugan.

I made this Bakugan Birthday Cake for my brother's seventh birthday. All I did was use the Wilton sports cake pan, then afterwards I iced it with vanilla frosting. I had one and a half pounds of fondant and I dyed three fourths of it red. What was left over I dyed black and yellow.

I copied the design off of a Bakugan my son had. I changed the colors around but it still looked pretty good. I made yellow and black designs and stuck them to the cake on top of the red with vanilla frosting.

I hope anyone who is out there has a blast making this cake. I know I did. By the way, I used Funfetti cake mix by Pillsbury and the total working time was about three hours. Enjoy!

Bakugan Ball cake
by: Lee-Ann

Wow that's really awesome. I have a nephew wanting something similar but am not sure he'll let me take any of those balls to copy :)

Has anyone tried an ice cream cake in the ball pan? He would really like an ice-cream cake. Kids don't want much nowadays do they!

Thanks,
Lee-Ann

I grew up watching my Mom make cakes. As I got older I dabbled in it and now it is a tradition to make my children's birthday cakes every year. This year when I asked my son what theme he wanted for his birthday cake, he said "Bakugan". I wasn't sure I was up for the task. I finally gave in and was very pleased with the results of this Bakugan birthday cake.

The only tip that I have is to find a design you like. Coloring pages found on-line really work great. Otherwise trace your design from a picture. Cut around the edges, lay it on your frosted cake, trace around the edges with a toothpick, pipe over the lines, and fill in with a star tip.
