I made this naughty cat cake for the mum of a lady at work. Her mum had a cat that had the same personality and looks as Felix from the cat food adverts, so she asked me if I could a cake a Felix type cat cake.

I Googled Felix and found some pictures of him and it became clear he was a naughty fun cat! It's a rich fruit cake, covered with marzipan and sugar paste.

I made the 'splat' cat first, from black sugar paste. TIP: I bought it in black as it takes ages to color yourself! I made some dents in the cake where he had 'landed' and plopped him on top.

Then I made a cat to peep over the cake. TIP: I added Tylose powder to stiffen the sugar paste. I made the body and head and pushed a cocktail stick through it to hold him together. I added the facial features and then and stuck him onto the cake with another cocktail stick. I added his arms, legs and tail last.

The cat hanging onto the cake was next and I scratched the cake surface with a scriber where his claws had gouged their way across the cake - (that hurt as the icing was so perfect!). I tuned his head round as though he was looking at something - maybe they'd all be caught by the cake decorator!

I added a mouse nibbled cheese with a mouse escaping down the side of the cake. The cheese is sugar paste with holes made by a ball tool. I added some cat paw prints just to make the cake even cuter!

I am very pleased with this cake and everyone loves it too - it is THE coolest naughty cat cake!

This cake is so cute. Some one has asked me to make one like it. I hope I can do it justice. Thank you for the information on how you approached the decorations. I will have to put my own spin on my cake, so it is not exactly like yours.

Coolest Purple Cat Face Cake 68

Homemade Purple Cat Face Cake

Homemade Purple Cat Face Cake

My best friend's daughter is mad about cats and the color purple. So when she came to me, asking if I could make her daughter's 3rd birthday cake, naturally it was going to be a purple cat face.

I made a vanilla butter cake and tinted it pink. Baked it in a square tin and cut the shape out. The recipe I used had a bunch of reviews saying that it made a very decent sized cake, but I'd heard that before and didn't believe it so made two batches, it was more than enough.

So I baked the second cake anyway and took it to my father in law's for dessert, but kept a little bit of it to make the raised nose on the cat's face. After I'd cut the shape out to what I thought looked good enough, I covered the nose and inside of the ears in white butter cream icing, then covered the rest in the purple icing. I scored the markings for where the darker triangles were going to go and set to the task of piping out the stars all over the face.

I tinted the remaining purple a bit more and piped the darker purple triangles in. For the nose and tongue I used different amounts of Rose colored gel paste and for the whiskers and mouth shape I used licorice. The eyes are dark chocolate buttons with a tiny bit of white icing in the centers. I wasn't completely happy with the eyes but it was the only thing I could think of. I'm still pretty new to cake decorating and it took an hour to decorate.

Overall I am really pleased with it. The party girl knew exactly what it was and she loved it!
