I made this Bakugan Ball Birthday Cake for my son who was into Bakugan, the entire party theme was Bakugan. I used the Wilton Sports Ball pan, half was chocolate, half was vanilla/yellow cake. Used the rest of the cake batter in a 9x13 pan and poured both in, so it was also a mixed cake.
The decorating of the sheets cake was first, made to look like the back of the Bakugan playing card, used some red sprinkles and white spray icing, but the rest was just icing. The ball was put together with icing in the center, iced the bottom half, then 'dropped' onto the sheet cake. I should have cut a flat spot on one side of the ball so it would have been set on the cake a little better.
I ended up using 'cookie sticks' through the ball to keep it set on the sheet cake. Then iced the top half, detailed like a Bakugan.
All the boys at the party were in awe. My son loved it.

This Bakugan Cake was made for a 7 year old boy and my first Bakugan-inspired cake. The cake itself is a 12”x18” split layer filled with buttercream. After frosting the cake with white buttercream frosting and letting it sit for 15 minutes to crust over, I placed a hand drawn star burst pattern made of cardboard and used decorating spray to create the airbrush effect. I started closest toward the center with yellow, followed by orange and lastly red.
The center Bakugan symbol and symbols on the side of the cake were all traced onto rice paper. Bottom and top borders were created using black tinted buttercream piped with tip 199 and orange tinted buttercream with tip 15. Side pattern made to divide Bakugan symbols made using yellow and orange buttercream (tip 15 in the middle, 17 on the outside). Cake was finished off by adding 3 Bakugan toys and 3 Bakugan cards along with random zigzag design (tip 5).
This cake was definitely a hit with all the boys there!
This Bakugan Birthday Cake is quite easy! I ordered an edible image of the Bakugan logo, trimmed it with scissors, and adhered it to rolled fondant with clear vanilla extract. Using a clean xacto knife I cut the fondant into a starburst shape. I brushed clear vanilla extract on the white fondant and sprinkled with clear cake sparkles. I allowed the fondant starburst with logo to dry for almost a week.
The cake is just a two layer round cake, simply iced with red icing to match the logo. I piped birthday greetings on the side of the cake, and then laid the dried fondant piece on top, adhere with a thin layer of buttercream.
My friend asked me to help her make a Bakugan cake. I literally had no cake pans or decorating tools, but this is what my cake turned out like with around the kitchen stuff and a little creativity.
The Bakugan ball was made from using a large oven ware glass bowl. It took one cake mix to fill it up, and I made two. When they were cool, I put them together to make a ball, using food coloring to mix the teal color. The green is also frosting, I just used a small Bakugan as a guide.
The sheet cake was two cake mixes poured into a cookie sheet.
