Bob the Builder Cake

Bob the Builder Cake

My son loves Bob the Builder so it was a natural choice for his second birthday. I searched for the Wilton cake pan which has been discontinued and found a couple on eBay but with only a few days until his birthday I realized I would have to be more inventive.

I don't like the taste of fondant but it looks good and is simple to work with so I opted to make this cake. I scanned in a picture of Bob that I thought would work then cropped it and reprinted it on my computer so I had something the correct size to work with. Then I made a 2-layer box mix chocolate cake in 9-inch round pans and layered them together with buttercream.

I covered them both with another crumb layer of buttercream then chilled them in the fridge whilst I rolled out the white fondant to cover the cake. Then I made some fondant pink, yellow and brown with Wilton gel colors and cut up my printed picture to make patterns to cut round to make Bob's face. I stuck them to the top of the cake with buttercream, molded a 3D nose, lips and mouth out of more pink fondant and used brown M&M's for eyes.

To finish off this Bob the Builder cake and to hide the bottom edge of the fondant against the cake plate I made the remaining buttercream royal blue to match Bob's colors and piped rosettes around the base. I have a number 2 candle the same color which we will add on the day!

This Bob The Builder Birthday Cake was made using a silicone cake mould which I purchased from EBay. I used a standard sponge mixture which I doubled. The icing is all made from butter cream using Wilton colours as I think they go further and don't taste.

Top tip - if you are mixing your own colours it's best to mix more than you need as you'll never manage to make that same colour again! Also - if you use buttercream you can always freeze it or use it to ice cupcakes.

I made this Bob the Builder cake for my son's 1st birthday.

I used the cake tin, I covered the cake in white fondant and then I painted the colours on with food colour and a paint brush. It took about 5 hours but was worth it in the end. I then added some tool figurines and made a saw out of fondant which I used as the Birthday Banner.

My nephew just had to have a Bob the Builder birthday cake for his 3rd birthday. After looking all over for decorations and coming up empty handed, I decided to give it a try.

I just found a simple picture of Bob and used fondant to make him, his tools and the lumber. I used packaged letters. He loved getting to hold the little hammer before he ate the cake!

My son LOVES Bob the Builder, but for some reason he is out of fashion and Handy Manny (Disney) has taken over.

So for my son's 2nd birthday party, I made him his very own version.

It was so tasty and looked great!

I made this Bob the Builder birthday cake for my grandson Charlie's third birthday. It was a really cool cake and, although it took months of hard work, the look on his face was well worth it!
