My grandson loves Yo Gabba Gabba and to me Brobee looked like the easiest character to create. Using 2 yellow cake mixes, I baked a round cake for his head, a 13x9 for his body and a 8x8 square for his arms. After the cakes cooled I cut a semi circle out of the 13x9 for the round cake to fit down in. Then cut thin pieces out of the square cake for his arms angling them to fit for shoulders.
I had to piece them together to make them the length I wanted. Then I cut away a little of the cake for his legs. I frosted the whole cake with Kelly green. I piped this hair with leaf green using a grass tip. I made his mouth with orange frosting I patted down with corn starch to make it smooth. Filled in his eyes with white and piped around his eyes, and mouth and his eye brow with black.
My son was turning 4 and he knew every year we would buy him a cake. This year without me asking he said he wanted a Brobee and Muno Birthday Cake. Times were hard and I knew I wouldn't be able to buy one, so I used my imagination to make him happy. These are the cakes I made which made him very happy because he could help and watch them go from normal 9 x 13 cakes into his favorite characters.
This was a fun experience for us both and it was more meaningful because we made them together. I am excited to make more cakes in the future, it is very easy if you use your imagination and determination.
Homemade Brobbie Birthday Cake from Yo Gabba Gabba
My son wanted a Brobbie Birthday Cake (from Yo Gabba Gabba). I used a large rectangle and square cake pans to make the body. I cut out the arms from the square cake pan and attached it from the rectangle cake with toothpicks.
Then, I cut away extra cake to make the legs. I mixed coconut into tinted light and dark green frosting for create a "furry look." I cut triangles out of the square cake for the horns and frosted them with red icing. Then, I used white, red, and chocolate frosting for the face. I was really easy and he loved it.
I made this Brobee Birthday Cake Idea for my son's second birthday party. It was a huge hit. I made 2 cakes (13x9). One was the body and the other I cut up for the arms, etc. I dyed white icing with green dye ubtill I got the 2 colors I needed. I applied it in rows with a cake decorating kit, then I took a fork and lightly went down to make the icing look like his fur.
The cupcakes I made and iced and then added plastic YGG rings I had bought. The kids loved them.
Since Yo Gabba Gabba is one of my 2 year old's favorite shows, I decided to make him a Brobee Birthday Cake. There is no shaped pan available for this cake so I baked a 13 x 9 in cake and cut and pieced it together. Dyed the frosting the right colors and wallah! Brobee!
He loved it and so did everyone else and somehow that day I got talked into coming up with a name and starting a small business out of my home. Thus "Happy Birthdays 'N' More was born!
