Jo Jo the Clown Cake

Jo Jo the Clown Cake

I got the idea for my Jo Jo the clown cake from this website. I used a Wilton cake pan with a box funfetti mix. I flipped it over and cut the top so it would lay flat. Decorated it with butter cream frosting and Wilton coloring for all the colors.

Once I frosted the cake I let it crust over. I traced a picture of JoJo on a piece of wax paper from a coloring book with a black marker (I had to blow it up on a copier to make it big enough) and then flipped it over and retraced it with black icing gel. Flipped the icing gel side down onto the cake, pressed lightly, and then picked it back up. It wasn't a perfect design but it was good enough to fill in from there.

I used the star tip to make her body, clothes, etc. and a round tip for her hair. Then piped in the words and finished with edible red and purple glitter.

Coolest Twin Clowns Cake 17

Homemade Twin Clowns Cake

Homemade Twin Clowns Cake

I wanted to attempt a tiered cake for the 'carnival' themed birthday of my twins.
I made the 2 10" cakes using 2 boxes of BC's vanilla cake mix. And the filling for this layer was strawberry jam.

The 8" and 6" tiers were BC's dark chocolate fudge cake with mocha-chocolate mousse filling between them. After assembling the tiers, I placed them on foiled covered bases and covered each with buttercream frosting. Then I inserted dowels in the 8" and 10" cake.

I used MMF to cover the cakes and placed each cake at a height (like coffee can) so the MMF draped smoothly. The remaining fondant was used to make the cut outs and design.

The scraps of cake while leveling the layers was mixed with buttercream to make 2 spheres, which I covered with fondant for the clown heads and used reaming fondant for ruffle and nose.

The final creation of this Twin Clowns Cake was a labor of love but totally worth it!

Jo Jo Clown Cake

Jo Jo Clown Cake

This Jo Jo the clown cake is my first attempt to a cake this size, mixing buttercream and fondant to finish. I was asked to create a birthday cake for a friend's son's first birthday party. To my surprise - it was for 100 people.

I searched online for other people's ideas and Disney's website for JoJo's colors and backgrounds and this is what I came up with. I used Wilton's techniques and tips for a cake recipe that could take the tiered stacked construction as well for the construction of the cake.

Many hours were spent baking to make this 6-layer, 3-tiered cake, but so much fun when it all came together.

Coolest Clowns on a Drum Cake 19


(Laurel, MD, USA)



This is my first clown cake that I created while taking Cake Decorating Classes at Michael's Craft Store. The idea of the Clowns on a Drum Cake was in one of Course books that we had to use.

It is a two layered cake iced and decorated with tinted buttercream. The body of the clowns are also made of buttercream and the heads were purchased from the craft store.

Homemade Clown Birthday Cake

Homemade Clown Birthday Cake

This homemade Clown Birthday cake consisted of a 10" round cake for the face, and a 9" x 13" cake from which the hat was cut.

I used blue and golden yellow icing to make the variegated hat rim and tassle. The hat itself was decorated with light blue icing with a swirl pattern in yellow icing added on top. The facial features were piped on using buttercream icing.
