Blue Cake

The cake! :)

The cake! :)

I made this cake for my Blue's Clues-obsessed son for his third birthday. It was a vanilla cake frosted with buttercream icing. I kind of made up the design, I wanted it to be "summer-y" so I copied freehand (with icing) onto the cake a picture of Blue from one of his Blue's Clues books, and added graham cracker crumbs for the sand. The beach ball was also made in icing to add to the summer theme. For Blue, I made the outline of her body in dark blue and filled it in with light blue icing with a star tip. Her eyes are little marshmallows. I cut them in half so they didn't pop out too much. I made a star tip border around the top and bottom of the cake, and I made pawprints in dark blue and light blue buttercream icing along the side of the cake and also on the base. This was one of my first "decorative" cakes I've made, and it was much easier to make than I had expected. :) My son loved it too!

I made this Blues Clues cake for my son Christopher, who is an absolute Blue's Clues fanatic. This was for his 2nd birthday. I wanted to do a cake with a picture of Steve and Blue together, but I wasn't able to find a very good picture online. So I ended up using two separate pictures.

I printed the pictures on cardstock and cut them out to use as templates. I used black gel icing to outline the pictures, and then watered down and colored icing to use as the filler. This was only my second attempt at making a custom cake like this - my first one was an Avatar: the Last Airbender cake for my then 8 year old son whose birthday was 11 days earlier. It's a little messy, but I did it all in one day and was getting a bit tired near the end.

The reason I used the watered down icing as "filler" was because I wanted to do something that looked a little smoother than the traditional star method. Christopher really enjoyed his cake.

My son loved Blues Clues when he was little. I decided to do his first birthday cake in the shape of Blue. I had always bought cakes in the past and money was too tight to buy one that year. It doesn't help that my husband, three children and I all have birthdays within a six week period. So I went to the internet to find ideas.

I came across this website and decided to try it. I found a cake template online and just cut out Blue's head. I tinted the frosting blue with food coloring. Once I had it frosted, I used blue sprinkles for her spots. I used a piece of taffy candy for her tongue, junior mints and marshmallows for her eyes.

For my first theme cake, I was a little shocked that this Blue's Clues Birthday Cake turned out so well.

I made this Blues Clues Birthday Cake for my daughter's 1st birthday. I was a little stressed out leading up to the day as she is not allowed to have any egg or dairy so was really worrying about what I could do.

She loved Blues Clues and I finally found a really great recipe that I could use that had no egg or dairy and it actually rises really well.
I prepared the cake the night before and then popped it in the freezer to make it much easier to ice - again the icing contains no dairy and is really yummy!

I did the outlines of the lines then filled it in using a piping bag. All the kids on the day loved it and most of all my daughter was really happy to see her favourite character on her special day.
