Blues Clues Cake

I did a 1/4 sheet cake that used two boxes of cake mix for this Blues Clues cake. Mine was half chocolate and half white. I had my husband help pour the batter so we did it at the same time and then I marbled it in the middle.

When I got ready to start doing the frosting I was preoccupied with the kids and forgot to put it in the freezer first. I did one thin layer that ended up full of crumbs and then froze it for about an hour and put another thin layer of white on to hide those imperfections. I then put it back in the freezer while I prepared the pattern.

To do the pattern I used my editing software to blow up the pattern on two pages and taped them together. Then I cut it out and gently laid it on top of the cake and traced all the details with a toothpick. I filled in the details with the star tip and even pressure. Add googly eyes to finish.

Blue's Clues Cake 39

I made this Blues Clues cake for my son's third birthday. It was my first attempt at fondant. I looked here at Coolest Birthday Cakes to get some inspiration.

I started with a chocolate cake covered in butter cream icing. I covered the entire cake in white rolled fondant. For Blue's face I just printed off a pattern from Nickjr.com.

Same way with the paw prints. I took the paper patterns and cut them out, then layered them on top of the blue tinted rolled fondant. Then cut the fondant with a knife.

For the letters I used the letter and number cutouts from Wiltons. Around the sides of the cake I added a bunch of "3"'s and two paw prints. The letter cutouts were difficult to use. A lot of the letters stuck inside the cutouts and then got deformed when trying to get them out. I was told to try greasing them with shortening first.

The cake, however, still turned out cute. Everyone loved it including my little birthday boy, Beau.

This Blues Clues cake is a 9" round cake. Each ear is formed from two whole cupcakes (at the end) and 2 half-cupcakes (to form the arch). I cut a small wedge out for the mouth, and replaced it with a wedge from a trimmed cupcake, so that the tongue would hang out of the mouth a little.

For a nice thin layer of icing, I used one and a half can of white vanilla, saving a portion of out about two tablespoons for the tongue. I used red and blue food coloring to get the desired colors. I cut the nose out of a blue fruit roll up. The white of the eyes are two flattened mini-marshmallows and the blue irises are blue M&Ms.

Kids loved the cake, ate it up.

I made this Blue's Clues Birthday Cake for my son's 2nd birthday party. He loved Blues Clues! I found a printable template online and cut it out from a 13x9 yellow cake. I then put a crumb coat of blue frosting on the entire cake and put it in the freezer for about an hour. I then frosted it a second time. I used a large marshmallow cut in half length wise for the eyes.

I added blue M&M's for the eyeballs. Blue's spots are microwaved blue airheads that I cut into random shapes and placed them on the cake. Same thing for Blue's tongue. I made the paw prints out of the scraps left from the 13x9.

I searched through many ideas and decided to cut out the shape of a 2 for this Blue's Clues Birthday Cake and decorate with paw prints and blue. I printed off a small picture of blue and used an exacto knife to cut the shape out of fondant.

I cut out six and then cut out the eyes, nose, mouth etc. I created each dog and then made the paw prints by rolling up little balls of fondant. The cake was just iced blue with buttercream and a darker blue border.
