This cat cake was made with the assistance of my eldest son for my own birthday. It was great fun to make and I even got him rolling the 'strands of wool' out of pink fondant. He loved doing it, although an extruder would have given a much neater and professional finish.
The cake is just a plain sponge baked in 2 pudding basins and sandwiched together with buttercream and jam. Then I covered it in more buttercream to stick a layer of pink fondant icing on before the yarn strands were then stuck on (with water). A cheeky fondant kitty on the top finished the cake. We made it the same colours as our beloved cat for a personalized look.
The design is from a book called 'Easy party cakes' by Debbie Brown. I've made a number of cakes from this book and all have worked out really well.
I made a cat cake for my son Rahul for his second birthday. My son likes Dogs and Cats. So I decided to make a cat cake for him. I borrowed the ideas from Betty Crocker website and made cut outs and assembled the cake. Before making it I came to this website page for some ideas.
It really needs so much of frosting but I did a very light coating only. It takes so much time to complete it. When I finished it I showed it to my son and he said "meaw". All the back pain and hard work that went into that cake - I just forgot everything and started smiling a lot.
The best part is he didn't let us cut the cake at the party so we had to cut another cake.
I offered to make a gluten free Cat cake for my niece's 2nd birthday. I actually got the idea from a few different cakes from this site.
I needed 3 round shaped cakes to create all the parts, cutting the ears and tail from one. I made one cake gluten free for my husband's family and two plain old chocolate cakes.
Icing is butter cream with colours added. I used a very small spatula for the icing which took some patience. It was easier to ice the cake after putting it in the freezer for 15 mins. I also used the gel icing pens for all the other lines, they are really easy to use.
My daughter loves Kittens and cakes. I got the idea for this cake from a children’s cake book. It was relatively easy.
I made the cake from two 1 liter cake bowls. I shaped them together to make a ball. Everything went well until I started to roll the strands of wool. I just could not get them right. Every strand was either a different thickness or you could see the indents of my finger. But to my surprise, as the cake went on, it all fitted nicely together.
My daughter was one very happy 8 year old on her birthday with the cake. I was pleased too.
I made this Homemade Cat Cake for my mother's birthday! Big Cat Fan! I used 10" round cake tins for the the body of the cat and 4" round cake tin for the head! To make the arms and legs I used fondant pieces.
The cake is a vanilla sponge with strawberry and butter cream icing middle. I made all the characters out of fondant while using Wilton gel icing colouring for the appropriate colours to dye the fondant.
The base is fondant I painted with food colouring to give the floor-board look.
I made this cat cake for a co-worker's birthday. I used a bread pan as the body, and made two round pans, one small one for the head, and one large one for the legs and other pieces that I cut to make the ears, tail and other shapes needed.
I decided to just make it solid white because I didn't want to have to match the color if I ran out of icing and had to make more. I am very proud of how this cake turned out.
