Homemade Cow Birthday Cake Idea

When I asked my daughter, who was turning three, what kind of birthday cake she wanted, she requested a mama moo-moo and baby moo-moo cake.
I searched online for a Cow Birthday Cake Idea and came across this website, and found all the inspiration that I needed!

I baked the cake in 1-9 inch pan, 1-6 inch Pyrex bowl, and the rest of the batter in cupcakes. I used a cake leveler to cut the small cake down to size. Then I iced both cakes; the body on the cake board and the small one on a piece of wax paper. Then I could peel the paper off before placing it on the body and touched up both cakes with icing after they were together.

I cut 1 cupcake in half and attached each half to the sides of the head with toothpicks and lots of icing for the ears. I used one cupcake per leg, cut in half, attached with toothpicks, and lots of icing to fill in the cracks. I let the icing crust over a bit and patted everything smooth with a paper towel. The spots I drew on with a toothpick, outlined with black chocolate icing, then filled in with the no.16 star tip.

The eyes were made with the no.12 round tip. I used pink icing and the star tip for the nose. And decorated a cupcake for the baby calf.
My daughter was very pleased with the results, and so was I!

This Homemade Cow Cake Idea was a 10" cake and a 6" cake. The bottom layer was iced with white buttercream and included black cow spots made of fondant. The second layer is just iced pink. I made the flowers a few days in advance out of rolled fondant using flower cutters. I also made the bee and lady bugs in advance from fondant as well.

The cows were made with fondant. I cut out black spots and put them on the cow parts before I assembled them. I used water and confectioners sugar to kind of glue the pieces together. I used a toothpick or you could use a thick spaghetti pasta to hold the head to the body. I used a Wilton grass tip to make the green grass. The pink flowers around the top layer are fondant. I used a new mold that I found a Michael's craft store to make the flowers. You just push the fondant into the mold, pull it out and you've got cute flowers!

Oh, I made eyelashes over the eyes of the cow on top with some black Wilton color paste and some vodka. It makes great edible paint! I also painted on the black stripes and dots on the bee and lady bug.

Coolest Miss Moo Cow Birthday Cake 35

Homemade Miss Moo Cow Birthday Cake

Homemade Miss Moo Cow Birthday Cake

For my son's 2nd birthday I made him this Miss Moo Birthday Cake. I got the idea from a book that he loves to read.

I baked a large rectangular chocolate cake and cut the cow head out of the par-frozen cake (doesn't crumble so much when it's partly frozen).
I then drew the outline of the eyes, nostrils, patches etc. with some sewing cotton and spread chocolate flavoured whipped cream on the parts which I was putting the chocolate sprinkles on.
After the sprinkles were on and tidy, I spread the plain whipped cream on. I used thin strips of Licorice for the hair.

I found it easier to use a piping bag to do up to the edges of the chocolate parts, that way they didn't get mixed. I then used the piping bag to draw in the eyes etc.
* Note, I decorated this cake just hours before the party so I didn't have to refrigerate it, that way the cream wouldn't get cold and hard and cracked.

My son said "look! a cow".
