Homemade Curious George Cake

I made this white layer cake for my daughter’s 3rd Curious George themed birthday party.

I used boxed cake mix with frosting between the layers. I used canned frosting for the entire thing and colored it as needed. I started by frosting the entire cake in yellow.

I had found the picture that I used for the cake online. It was cute, because it also happened to match the invitations for the party. I printed the picture and taped waxed paper to it. I then traced the picture on the waxed paper using a small tip in black frosting. To make the black frosting, I mixed chocolate frosting with black coloring.

Once I had traced the entire picture, I carefully flipped the waxed paper over on top of the cake where I wanted it. This left an outline that I could use as a guide.

Once I had the outline, I mixed up a bunch of different colors and started filling in the birthday hat, cake, face, hands and feet, and frosting bag. I thinned the frosting out a bit so that it would spread more easily. I used a toothpick as a sort of paint brush to spread the color. It was like coloring in a coloring book!

Once those were complete, I filled George's body in with chocolate frosting using a star tip. At the end, I went over all of the outline again with black. I also added the “Happy Birthday” and “Bree”.

She just loved her Curious George Cake, and I could tell she appreciated the time I spent on it.

Homemade Curious George Cake

I decided to have a Curious George themed birthday for my son's first birthday. As most moms out there will see, there is no cake pan or design specific to Curious George, so I had to tap into my unfound artistic skills.

I used a 12" square cake pan to bake 2 boxes of regular devil's food cake mix. I then frosted the cake with regular whipped chocolate frosting. I bought a pre-mixed box of fondant with 4 colors in 4 oz. packages at Hobby Lobby. I drew Curious George's head on parchment paper to use a stencil. I rolled the dark brown fondant over the outline of the top portion of his head, flipped the parchment over and cut along the lines and placed the dark brown fondant on the cake. I then rolled the light brown fondant over the muzzle area and his ears and again flipped and cut out.

The hardest part of the cake had to be placing the light brown over the dark brown fondant. I repeated the same steps with black and pink fondant for his mouth. I finished the cake off by outlining and drawing his nose on using black decorating gel.

The Curious George Cake was a hit and I received TONS of compliments, even on the taste! I will definitely do this cake again when Sam will be able to appreciate his mother's artistic talents.

I made this Curious George Birthday Cake for my daughter's birthday. She just turned three. As you can see she is a big Curious George fan.

I used the animal crackers pan. It was very easy to use and decorate.
