One View, Characters go all the way around...

My Aunt wanted me to make my cousin a birthday cake for her 2nd birthday. She wanted to have a 'Blues Clues' theme. I searched EVERYWHERE for anything relating to blues clues, but I could not find a thing.

So, I figured that I always wanted to play with fondant and I tried it. At first I bought the Wilton premade brand, for the characters. I cut them out by hand, and painted them with a food coloring/vodka mix.

Soon a one tiered cake, then came to a three tiered cake...I wanted to cover the entire cake in fondant, so I decided to make the fondant myself - It would have been a small fortune to buy pre-made. The fondant gave my arms a good workout, and it was cheaper to make - not to mention the taste was a lot better! I tinted it to the colors I wanted.

The insides of the cake?

Bottom layer I used DH yellow cake mix, and for the filling I used 1 box of vanilla pudding (prepared) mixed with a block a room temp cream cheese and a can of drained crushed pineapple. I then added in fresh blueberries.

The 2nd tier was a box of DH Choc cake mix, filled with cook n serve choc pudding and strawberries.

Then the top layer was a box of DH Yellow filled with lemon curd.

I am very happy with the results. It was my first time making a tiered cake and a first for playing with the fondant. I will def do something like this again!

This is my Homemade Blues Clues Birthday Cake that I made for my best friends’ twins. The cake is a double layer 9x13. After icing, I used the Wilton spray color green and sprayed the entire cake. I cooled the cake for about 15 minutes prior to and after spraying the cake. I used green icing and a Wilton tip as accent around the base of the cake. I used a straw to cut out tiny circles of yellow fondant to make the dandelions in the grass.

For Blue, I made a batch of Rice Krispy Treats and hand shaped his body and head separately. I then covered him in pre-dyed blue fondant. I used a circle stencil and blue Wilton color spray to spray on his dots. I used a wire coat hanger wrapped in fondant for his ears. I should have put them in the fridge to harden after I had gotten the fondant on the hangers properly. I didn’t which is why there visibly a lot of work done with the ears. I used stick (like lollipop sticks) to secure the head to the body and cut out his mouth, nose, and eyes out of fondant.

This cake was a lot of fun to make. Once Blue had eyes, he and I became good friends. It was sad to see him go but I’m happy that the boys liked their cake.
