Homemade Ben 10 Cake

This Ben 10 cake was a request from my son. He's 8. I am very much a rookie at this stuff though. So it is a chocolate fudge cake made from a box mix. I add almost 8 oz to the cake plus a small amount of corn syrup to make it extra moist and it's really yum.

I also brush on boiled water and sugar for even more moistness. It's an alternative for the already made dry cake. { 2 6in" round for top 2 10" round for bottom }feeds a lot, I mean a lot.

Filling - instant chocolate pudding, a container of cool whip and some chocolate frosting all mixed up and it's thick but light {don't add the milk required in the pudding though}.

Frosting - Usually for chocolate I buy Betty Crocker or something only because this cake was handmade marshmallow fondant witch was fun and a first . So it was covered .

Now I had to dye the fondant while it was still hot, a mix of yellow and green for the lime Ben 10 color.

I made accents, dyed them later. I usually draw all my cake plans on paper first to get an idea. Now for the decorations, just bought a Ben 10 guy, and used a 32 tip for the border {again a can of frosting I think vanilla). I made a fbct { frozen transfer for the Ben 10 words, you can google that to find out how to do that. I recommend always use canned for that because it peels off easier. My homemade buttercream smeared badly on one cake.

It was a huge hit. I had another boy at the party request the same for his birthday .

Homemade Ben 10 Birthday Cake Design

My son was turning 4 and couldn’t choose between a Spiderman or Ben 10 theme. So we decided to combine them. I needed a cake which would combine both so I decided to do a Spiderman layer on the bottom and a Ben 10 omnitrix on top. This could really be adapted to any two superheroes with a little imagination!

The bottom layer is a square sponge cake, covered with plain white plastic icing. I then piped the black spiderweb with black buttercream icing. I bought the Spiderman figures made out of icing at a local baking goods store. I then coloured the plastic icing red and blue and rolled it into a “worm” shape to put around the bottom. This was quite tricky and didn’t come out as thin or uniform as I would have liked. Maybe just piping buttercream stars in the two colours would have worked better.

The top layer (the Omnitrix – Ben’s watch) – I baked a round sponge and covered the sides with grey tinted plastic icing. I traced a picture of the omnitrix onto baking paper and then placed it on the top of a sheet of plastic icing to get the dimensions right. I just pricked a pin through the baking paper all along the lines to give me a line to follow when cutting plastic icing to size. I actually used a pizza cutter to cut the plastic icing and this worked well.

The final touch of the Ben 10 Birthday Cake Design was putting a small figurine of my son’s favorite Ben 10 alien on top of the watch.

This cake was a huge hit and tons of fun to make.
