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).
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.
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 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.
