I made this Wow Wow Wubbzy Birthday Cake & Cupcakes for a friend…

Here’s the template for Wubbzy…

I printed mine out on Yellow Construction Paper.

I used 1 box of yellow cake in a 13×9.5,2 inch pan

and 1 box of funfetti cake for 24 cupcakes

and 4 cans of white/vanilla frosting (2 for yellow & one for black

and another for the cupcakes)

After reading some tips on this site, I baked the body first…

let cool & then wrap in in saran wrap & put in freezer for 2-3 hours.

This will make cutting his ears much easier & less crumby.

(I printed & cut out the head template & use it as a cutting guide.

I also covered some cardboard with wax paper to use as a base.

This makes icing, storing & transferring a bit easier.)

After cutting, do a crumb coat (thin layer) of frosting

and freeze for 30 more minutes.

*Tip: Color frosting right in the container by using just one beater!

I made sure to match the color of the frosting to my paper template.

I flipped the pan I used for baking over

and was able to spin or “lazy susan” my cardboard base.

Cover cake with desired amount of frosting.

(My frosting job wasn’t perfect, but after I added the facial features it made it look a lot better… so don’t get discouraged.)

Before I added the black, I chilled the cake in the freezer again (for about 15 mins) to give the yellow a chance to set.

Add the black features using a bag & writing tip

(or snip the corner of a baggie)

Voilà! You’ve created Wubbzy!

(Don’t transfer him to a plate or display board until just before the party.

Add his arms, legs & tail at that time as well.)

The better chilled he is, the better he’ll do in transport & transfer.

The cupcakes were much easier.

You don’t have to worry so much about the frosting being perfect,

because you just dip & roll the iced tops in colored sugar sprinkles.

Then top with some Wubbzy ring favors!

This was my first attempt & I must say we were very pleased with how it all came together.

Huge THANKS to all the previous submissions

for their tips & inspiration.
