I made this Bakugan Birthday Cake for my nephew Ashton’s sixth birthday.

My sister asked me to make this for her and I love to make cakes, especially for family so I figures why not? I had no idea what Bakugan was and originally was going to make a red cake but decided to add the star motif after the fact. The “Happy Birthday” fondant mat is rolled into it.

The decals are non-toxic kids stick-on tattoos which I carefully wet and stuck on the fondant with a damp cloth. The cake is chocolate and the icing is homemade buttercream flavoured with banana and chocolate. I make my own fondant, cause the kids like the marshmallow recipe better than the store-bought stuff and I find it much easier to work with. AND it’s so easy to make!

Enjoy!
