Homemade Ice Cream Bug Cake

by Molly
(Chippewa Falls, WI)


I made this ice cream bug cake for my daughters first birthday. I took 5 lg glass bowls and lined them with clear wrap, then layered in the bowls, white ice cream, chocolate ice cream, crushed orea cookies, fudge, and white ice cream.I let them sit in the freezer until hard, then took whipped cream and white ice cream and mixed that together with my food coloring to frost them. I made diffrent lines and shapes on each hump of the bug. (Note that once it warms up, the colors can run) I did use a gel to make the different shapes, which I would not recommend. I also made some cupcakes and ice cream cone cakes, which I frosted and added sprinkles and candy bugs to.

When my son turned 2 he asked for a bug cake. This is what I came up with. The cake was made out of two 9x13 cakes stacked and then carved into a mound. I then frosted it with a chocolate butter cream frosting and covered it with crushed Oreo cookies to make dirt. I then used marshmallow fondant to form a large leaf that I laid over the mound. I used a toothpick to imprint veins on the leaf. The bugs were made from rice crispy treats covered with marshmallow fondant. The grass/leaves also were made of fondant rolled out and cut into pointed strips.

I made this bug cake for my daughter's 1st birthday and everyone just loved it. I started out by using a round Pyrex bowl for the lady bug, and covered it in marshmallow fondant. I had never made it before, but it was super easy. You can get the recipe on-line and video directions on You Tube.

I used Mr. Potato Head pieces for the eyes and mouth. I used pipe cleaner for the legs and antennas. Just wanted to thank everyone on this web site for all the great ideas.

I had a set of breast cake pan, I know that sounds horrible, but I was moving and that is the only pan I had and needed to make my son's first birthday cake so I had this Anthill Cake Idea.

I found some cute ants and bugs and made 2 anthills. I sprinkled brown sugar on the hills to make them look sandy. I use the grass tip for that. Arranged the bugs and everyone loved it. Nobody even questioned how it was done.

My son wanted a bug party. I decided to make an ant bed. I made a rectangle flat cake for the bottom. I then took a bowl and flipped it upside down. I Iced it with brown icing and put crumbled vanilla wafers on top. I got the ants from the dollar store and the grass from Walmart.

Super cheap and super easy!

I made this bug birthday cake from a pan that I found at a yard sale a couple of years ago. My granddaughter loved it.

It is made with a box of yellow cake mix and butter cream icing colored yellow and black. I love the gym shoes on it. I used a small tip and white icing to make the shoe strings.

My son wanted a bugs cake. I made the darkest chocolate cake I could, added dark chocolate frosting, ground up Oreo cookies for the dirt topping and found the ugliest worms and bugs I could (at the dollar store).
