My grandson wanted a Ben 10 cake for his fifth Birthday so I started my research; I found a picture on the internet, printed it out, enlarged it, traced it onto greased proof paper and cut around it.
I made 4" x 8" sq chocolate mud cakes, as I found their texture easier for cutting. Two cakes were used for the legs and feet, one for the body and another one for the head. I put the tracing on top and cut around to shape.
I covered the cake with butter icing so the pieces would stick together and this also helped the Royal icing to adhere more easily.
White Royal icing was used for the shirt and I tinted some of it green for the trousers and some flesh-colored for the arms, face and ears. Royal icing tinted brown was used for the hair and some, tinted black, for the shoes, details on the shirt and the watch.
I had quite a bit of cake left over so I combined the pieces and made a separate cake with his name on, and put candles on it. He took the small one home as his birthday was the next day. There wasn't much left of the cake and everyone said how much they enjoyed it.
My son loves Ben 10 so I made this Ben 10 Birthday Cake for his 6th Birthday. I saw a similar cake online and decided to try it myself, using my son's Ben 10 watch for inspiration.
I used a sheet cake for the base and cut notches in the sides as in the base of the watch. I used a round cake for the top/dial.
I frosted both cakes with butter cream frosting. Then I covered them with "plastic" chocolate. Afterwards, I placed the round cake on top of the sheet cake and completed the decorations.
For the black icing, I made plastic chocolate using dark chocolate that I tinted black. The other colors were created using plastic chocolate made with white chocolate that I divided and tinted to the appropriate colors.
The plastic chocolate can be rolled and molded like clay. Like clay, you'll have to knead it a bit to get it nice and pliable. Once the plastic chocolate sets it will harden leaving your cake with a yummy candy shell.
This Ben 10 and aliens birthday cake is triple chocolate cake with minty butter cream that I made for Alana's 3rd birthday. She's an adorable girl who loves boy stuffs. Alana’s mom is one of my best friend's at the office.
I made the cake simple but rich in detail. i wondered how to make it girly, adding ribbons or flowers might made the cake look weird. It took me 5 hours of "hard time" of making it, tried to Google many pictures as possible to add ideas. The hardest part is to make Ben 10's head. But finally I made it, GREAT and HANDSOME Ben.
Alana loved it so much. She even loved to “play” with the monster just before the party began. Her mom texted me saying that Alana’s didn’t want to cut the cake, so it was brought back home. But when the cake was finally cut, she couldn’t stop eating it coz it’s so delicious.
I made this Ben 10 Birthday Cake for a friend's son in July 09. I got the idea from a web sight. I cooked a 12" round chocolate mud cake and iced it with ganache.
I then covered the cake with green fondant. I used baking paper to copy a picture and then cut the shapes in the right colours and placed it on the cake to make the picture of Ben 10. His head, arm and watch I made in 2D using fondant and then placed some green sparkle editable gel on and around the watch for effect.
I iced the board with butter cream and black food dye and made the letters and number out of fondant also. The cake was a big hit, he loved it!
