Homemade Cat Birthday Cake

My daughter is animal crazy so I wanted to make an animal cake that wouldn't take forever to make/decorate. The cat looked easy and you can pretty much decorate it how you like. I hired a "animal crackers" cake pan from a kitchen store for the shape.

I used 2 large cake mixes to make the one cake as the pans are quite deep. I froze the cake, once cooled and iced it the next day. I ran a knife over the cake using swirly movements to give the icing a "rough textured" look.

The Cat Birthday Cake was easy to decorate and my daughter loved it.(The hardest part in making this cake was getting the colour right).

Homemade Cat Birthday Cake

I made this Cat Birthday Cake for my daughter's 2nd birthday. I made 3 circular cakes, two small and 1 large. I cut the ear from one of the small cakes that I used as a head and face. Then I cut the tail from the other small cake. I put the large circular cake beneath the face of the cat(small cake).

Then I drew the nose, eyes etc. I used the white chocolate buttons as eyes. Cut the tail from the 2nd small cake. I saw the picture of the cat cake on this website which actually helped me a lot in preparing the cake and decorating it.

I made two different sized circle cakes for this Cat Cake. One for the head and one for the body. I used a sponge to cut out the tail, ears and feet. To fit the head snuggly into the body I used the tin of the head as a template to ensure the head fitted into the body.

Decorating:
Cover in colored butter cream icing. Use a hot knife to smooth. Then using candy covered chocolates make the rainbow pattern. Use liquorice for the whiskers, mouth, nose ears and feet. Marshmallows for the eyes and then a white chocolate button and a brown chocolate candy.

YUM!

This Cat Cake was requested by co-workers at my “day job” for a woman who loves cats and would no longer be with our company. This is a Chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream. It was very easily cut and assembled starting with a sheet pan. Then the appropriate size round pans to cut the head and body. The ears and tail were found within extra cake scraps. I iced the pieces separate then attached with buttercream. A simple circular swirl in the frosting gives the appearance of round paws. 2007

I used the cakes on this site as inspiration (thanks everyone!). This cat birthday cake is a kind of a combo of the Betty Crocker style cat cake and the Wilton animal cracker.

I used marzipan to build up the face and for the shape of the legs (I am sure you can use fondant, but I live in France and its not readily available).

It was a lot easier than I thought and would definitely do it again.

What tip did you use?

I'm hoping to make this for my son's birthday in a couple weeks. He's cat-crazy! Can you tell me what kind of tip you used to make it look like fur? Any advice or details you can give me would be appreciated!:)

I made this cat cake for a friend's birthday lunch. Everyone in the group loves both cats and flowers. I made the cat laying in the flower bed out of gumpaste; the flowers are royal icing. The cake is covered with fondant - turned out to be a fun cake that everyone loved.

I made this Cat cake for a friend's daughter's birthday.

She turned ten and she was in the middle of reading the 'Warriors' series by Erin Hunter. The cake was a hit on her birthday!
