I made this cake for my 3 yr old son. He has been wanting a bobcat cake for months. His daddy has taken him for many bobcat rides, so this was defiantly going to be his birthday theme!
I baked a 9x13 size yellow cake and then cut the shape of a bobcat. I had run a picture off the internet to give me an idea of what to look at. After cutting the shape I covered it in white frosting, outlined everything in black using a number 3 tip.
With orange frosting and a number 16 tip I colored in the orange and used a tip 5 for the lines under the numbers. I used tip 2 for the bobcat cage. I used tip 18 to make stars along the bottom to make it look complete.
The cake was a big hit! Even his grandpa who owns 6 or 7 bobcats was pretty impressed.
I needed to make a birthday cake for my uncle (57) and cousin (11). With the huge age gap and a gender gap I had a hard time thinking of a theme until I remembered that they are both cat lovers. This cat cake was very easy to make.
I just baked two 12-inch rounds and stacked them. I put a base coat of white buttercream on it. Then I mapped out the eyes, ears, nose, mouth and whiskers. Then I filled my piping bag with two colors of buttercream – white and brown. I didn’t stack the colors; I put the white on one side of the piping bag (the left) and the brown on the other (the right).
Then I used a grass/hair tip (Wilton’s is number 233) and piped away. Lastly I added the facial features and the text. This wasn’t a complex cake to make but it was very labor intensive.
This Kitty Cupcake cake was made out of cupcakes. I looked at a photo of the kitty which was also going to be a surprise present, and tried duplicating it. First, I lined up cupcakes into a basic outline of the kitty. Second, I spread frosting down on the board and applied the cupcakes.
Then I piped icing on the cake and smoothed it out. When doing the hair you can either fork texture it or pipe it out using a grass tip, and even use a shell tip and dot it or swirl pattern it on.
The cake was a huge success and brought a lot of happiness to the little girl who got her surprise cake.
I made this Blue Cat Birthday Cake with my 11 year old daughter for my boyfriend's daughter 9th birthday. She is a cat lover and has beautiful blue eyes so we combined both in that cake.
I made the body of the cat with two round cakes. For the head, I did a smaller circle in the big one and used the left over for the tale. I used two cupcakes for the ears and added two little round piece of cake for the cheeks.
She was very happy and didn't notice that we forgot the whiskers.
My soon to be 2 yr old daughter insisted the only cake she wanted was a Blue Cat Birthday Cake. So here is a blue cat!
I made one round cake and 2 muffins out of a butter cake recipe - cut the muffins into triangles for the ears and iced with store bought roll out icing that I used food colouring to make blue etc. I cut up strips of liquorice for the whiskers and mouth.
