I made this 2 tier Cat Birthday Cake for my niece's 7th birthday. I got the cat from the Dollar store, it was a glass cat. I used suckers to make the yarn balls. Once I stuck the suckers where I wanted them I used my writing tip to make the form of a yarn ball. I streamed the two different colors of yarn balls around the tops of each layer of cake and over the cat.
I made her name out of strawberry chocolate. I used chocolate pick molds and stuck them in the freezer for a bit so they would be hard enough to poke through the cake without breaking. Then I poked a hole with a toothpick where I wanted to place the letters.
The cupcakes had store bought cats on them. The yarn balls on the cupcakes were made from gumballs. Everyone Loved it.
I made a lemon cake with lemon curd buttercream covered in white sugarpaste. I covered the bottom board in white sugarpaste also. To clean up the edges between the cake and the covered board - piped back icing in pearls.
Then made the cat and constructed on top of the cake securing with royal icing. Black paw prints used up the last of the black sugarpaste. Bought four yellow and one white sugarmice (from old fashioned sweet shop) and dusted one brown and four grey - secured onto cake with royal icing.
The Cat Cake Design was commissioned for a leaving do of a teacher from school - the brown mouse is her escaping whilst the four grey ones are her colleagues left behind!!
This Cat Birthday Cake was for a little girl that loves kitties. I used a large Wilton oval cake pan for the body and a small oval for the head. I trimmed a little off the sides of the small oval cake to make the ears of the cat attaching with icing. I also made a small round cake and cut out and attached a tail.
The cake was iced with a Wilton grass tip. I made a collar for the cat with fondant rolled into ball. The nose, mouth and eyes were fondant as well. Very simple, but cute cake.
