My son is a huge fan of Ben-10 from cartoon network. I have been baking his birthday cakes for 7 years and watch a lot of food network, and live by WWDD- what would Duff do?-. So this Ben 10 cake is the arm of Ben and his latest omnitrex.
The arm pan was the Wilton dinosaur, carved down to arm width and the omnitrex is one-half of a ball with the top cut off. I layered "bones" of fondant and covered the cake with a mix of tan and light brown fondant, that was highlighted with a light mix of vodka and black/brown paste food coloring.
The Omnitrex detailing is black fondant and hand-tinted gray fondant. The glowing green was achieved with Wilton green glitter gel. Overall, one of my favorite cakes and only took about 45 minutes to decorate start to finish.
This Ben 10 Cake was made for a friend's little boy who totally loves Ben 10. He wanted the real Ben 10 to arrive at his party (as he sent him an invitation).
So his mum wanted something very lifelike. I decided on this head and shoulders style with his super watch.
It turned out totally great and I received many many comments. He is all sponge covered in royal icing and his hair is chocolate butter cream. He is also not far off been the same size as a small toddler.
This did take a while but was totally worth it. The whole shaping process is the hard part but get right and it comes together. And believe it or not this is only my 8th birthday cake I've made. I was totally chuffed!
Here is a very simple Ben 10 cake to do for all the Ben 10 fans. My kid just loves Ben 10 and so he was very happy with his birthday cake. You have to make a round cake. I then covered the cake with white sugar paste and used it as base for my decorations. I used some food colour to colour the sugar paste according to my needs.
I cut some star shapes in black and green and put them on the cake. I did the figure of Ben 10 sitting on the cake and I also put some aliens around the cake. Of course they are made of sugar paste. I also did the Omnitrix on top of the cake.
I made this Ben 10 cake for my nephew's birthday as he is mad on Ben 10. I used a rectangular cake tin to make the sponge which had a buttercream filling and then I covered it with green sugarpaste icing which I purchased from my local cake shop.
I found a picture of Ben 10 on the internet and traced the picture onto paper and then I made separate templates of Ben 10. Even his ears and eyebrows were cut out separately. I cut all the templates on the sugarpaste and then I placed them all together on the cake to form the Ben 10 picture. To finish the cake off I piped royal icing shells around the bottom of the cake.
For the Ben 10 cake I made a round, 20cm chocolate fudge cake with real 70% cocoa solids chocolate and layered it with chocolate fudge. The chocolate fudge is made by melting chocolate with cream, cooling it and then adding some homemade vanilla buttercream to it to sweeten and thicken it.
There are 4 cake layers and 3 choc fudge layers. I then coated the top of the cake first with buttercream and then with homemade fondant icing. The Ben 10 figure I cut out the outline from a picture from the internet from fondant icing strengthened with gum tragacanth and, when dry, painted Ben with edible colours.
