I made this Ben10 Cake for my son's seventh birthday. He's a huge Ben 10 fan. I made it from 2 sheet cakes.

It took me 4 hours to get all the logo done, it is made of fondant and even though I tried to color the fondant black it always turned gray so I finally decided to literally paint-on the surface with black food color. About the green base it was just a result of improvisation, as I did not have the right tools, the whole fondant was wrinkled and looked strange so I decide to make some cuts to it and paint green and that’s how the strange green look came from haha, I guess it worked, it looks like there was a battle of aliens over there!

This was my second cake and I hope it inspires you to decorate with fondant! It is just like play doh for grown ups. I am just learning to work with it but I hope the second cake I make it turns out better! I hope you liked the result!

My son wanted a Ben 10 cake for his 6th birthday party so I made this Omnitrix cake with Ben 10 and some of his aliens standing around it. It was a basic chocolate layer cake coated with caramel (sweetened tinned condensed milk which has been boiled in the microwave until brown)and then covered with green coloured peppermint flavoured fondant icing which is really easy to make.

The characters were also made from coloured fondant icing. I used cocktail sticks to hold the arms, legs and heads on and glued the various parts together with some of the relevant coloured fondant mixed to a paste with hot water (sometimes referred to as sugar glue). Each alien had a tiny Omnitrix on its chest and the Ben character had the omnitrix on his wrist. The omnitrix was outlined with licorice and the triangles painted with edible silver paint (available from caked decorating shops).

I rolled out some fondant for the lettering and used cookie cutter letters and numbers to cut them out.

As Ben 10 is the coolest boy thing at the moment of course Devon wanted a Ben 10 cake! The cake is a light death by chocolate cake with intense chocolate icing, for the boy who would have chocolate for breakfast if he could. Any cake would be fine, as long as you like making it. He wanted the cool picture on the front of the 2009 Ben 10 Annual.

I used baking paper to trace the image so I had practice in the drawing proportions, then enlarged the image using a photocopier to get the size I wanted. I piped the black icing using a 00 nozzle. After doing the outline, I filled in the gaps using icing sugar and appropriate colour mixtures. I used yellow and green sparkle gel for the effect of the Omnitrix.

It was a fun cake to do, and I loved the gel to work with (very forgiving). Enjoy what ever cake you do, because its meant to be fun to bake and even more to eat!

BAKING PAPER?
by: Anonymous

Wow that is such a cool cake!! just wondering (I'm new at this) when you say you copied the image onto baking paper, then what? Do you put the icing on top of the baking paper and take it off some how at the end? Sorry for the dumb question!! I have only made one other cake and I did it on rice paper that was supposed to disintegrate once iced. It did not disintegrate at all.

Fantastic

My grandson will be turning 4 next week, and he just loves Ben 10, as I do a lot of baking I have never done a theme cake????
Could you give me instructions how you made this I mean a step by step. I can make the cake but I am not too sure with the one icing you have on top and how you did the fantastic job with the picture what you used to make this seem so much like the picture I have seen my grandson look at. Please help me??

Ben 10 Cake with Aliens

Ben 10 Cake with Aliens

I made a basic Madeira sponge in a rectangular pan (although any shape can be used). I iced it all over with buttercream with one half green and one half yellow. I found using the pastes was the best way to get the vibrant colours that are used in cartoons.

I put them on separately but blended them to make the so it was similar to colours used in the show. I used sugarpaste icing cut into rounds and coloured with food coloring and placed randomly around the cake. I used larger circles to hold the toys which I purchased as part of the birthday present for my son.

Any combination of toys can be used and it is easy to place the toys on the cake once the cake has been put in it's place.

I combined the icings to get a yellowy green which I piped around the edges, top and bottom.
Best part was he got to keep the toys!

This cake is great, i also live in Brisbane do you make these cakes and sell them? I would be interested in getting one for my son's birthday in July. We could supply the toys if that's easier as well

Thanks
