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.
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!
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.
