Barney Cake

Barney Cake

I just couldn't find a Barney pan. The ones that I found on the internet were to expensive. So I decided to make a buttercream transfer and it came out better than what I expected!

This is the box cake recipe! I just doubled the ingredients. I dyed the batter purple and the filling green. The filling was also a store bought frosting.

This is the procedure of the buttercream transfer that I decided to do for this cake:

1. Find a picture that you want to use. Coloring book pages are the best. There are tons of free coloring sites online. I used Barney.

2. Using a stiff frosting (I usually use Wilton Black) and outline your words and pictures.

3. Start to fill in colors in layers using a round tip. Make sure to use medium consistency frosting.

4. Using a knife dipped in hot water (and re-dipping as needed) gently smooth frosting from the back to push down into crevices.

5. Fill in around pictures and words with your background color- mine is green.

6. Fill in the rest of the top. I measured mine to the same size as the top of the cake, but you can also do it in a small shape and place it on top of an already decorated cake. Don't forget to smooth it.

7. Cover with wax paper and smooth with your hands.

8. Place in freezer for 30 minutes or more.

9. Remove wax paper from the top and place on top of cake that has been crumb coated and frosted on the sides.

10. Peel wax paper from the top.

11. Add boarders, I made them as grass.

And that's it! The kids loved it!

but I don't understand your directions. Did you make the Barney character on wax paper, than froze it,then transferred it to the cake? I would love to make this, but can't figure it out.

Coolest Barney And Friends Cake 14

Barney And Friends Cake

Barney And Friends Cake

My sister-in-law was having a Barney themed birthday for my nephew, he just loves Barney and all his friends so she asked me to make him a Barney and friends cake and told me to do whatever I fancied. So I came up with this picture.

The cake itself is a three layered vanilla sponge using; caster sugar, butter, eggs and flour, I covered the three layers with butter cream and filled each layer with butter cream then covered the whole cake in suparpaste icing.

For the characters I first cut out the shape of each and then built on to make it 3-d. I coloured each bit of icing using liquid colour, first lightly and made it darker adding slightly more colour. It took me about 3/4 of an hour to finally get the character the way I wanted. I piped around the cake using white royal icing and then went over it with the turquoise to add colour.

My nephew loved it and kept trying to grab the characters and knew who they were when we brought the cake out which was good, everybody loved it, I will admit that I was a little sad to see it cut up because I'd worked so long on it but I suppose the inevitable had to happen but it tasted great.

Coolest Barney and Friends Birthday Cake 19

Barney and Friends Birthday Cake

Barney and Friends Birthday Cake

I made this Barney and Friends Birthday Cake for a friend's daughter. I used 2 9in cake pans. The cake has 2 layers. Bought the vanilla frosting from food store(Stop and Shop) and tinted them using Wilton food coloring gel(found at Micheal's, A.C.Moore & Walmart).

I made the Barney figures, flowers, bow on top and birthday banner all a week ahead of time in order to harden in time. The figures are made with ready made gumpaste and I put them on lollipop sticks. The flowers were also made with gumpaste and I used Wilton flower cookie cutters. The birthday banner and Bow were also made with gumpaste.

The purple ribbons on the side(which give the cake a present look) were made with Wilton ready made fondant. I made those the same day the cake was due because I did not want them to harden until on the cake.

The lettering on the birthday banner is made with royal icing(hardens fast).
