Homemade Diego Mountain Scene Cake

Homemade Diego Mountain Scene Cake

This is the Diego mountain scene cake I made for my son's fourth birthday, chocolate with banana flavored frosting. Cake was used to make the mountain, the rest was frosting, with the exception of the Diego candle, the plastic baby jaguar, the plastic macaw, and the plastic trees. The lookout tower was frosted cake, same with the stones and water.

It was made using Wilton 10" cake round, I baked 3 cakes and froze them two days prior. On the day of decorating I took the cakes out one at a time, dust the crumbs off and began assembling the first two layers with banana flavored frosting in the middle. The third cake I cut into the shape of the mountain and added it to the cake as layers (with frosting in between).

I iced the whole cake with yellow frosting for a base except the mountain, it was frosted in green. I used Wilton round tips to make the stones, the Wilton grass tip for the grass, and the star tip for the ruffles. I added the plastic pieces and the candle and transported the cake to the party in a wedding cake box lined with non-slip rubber shelf liner.

beautiful cake

This cake is amazing! I was going to make it for my son, who will be having two birthday parties. One will be in another state, and I was wondering how you thought this cake would be if I made it the night before, refrigerated it, and transported it? Any suggestions...

So excited about making this cake
by: Heather

I am fixing this cake for my 2 year old little boy's b-day. I am so excited about it, I'm actually baking it right now, I am sort of worried though, I used a 10 inch round Wilton cake pan 2 inch deep, I have set the stove to 350 and baked the cake for 35 minutes now, the center of it is still jiggly so, not sure what to do now but keep baking it, if anyone can help please do so (:
also it seems to be a pretty big cake already and I haven't even put it together to make a 2 layer looks like it's gonna be huge!

Thanks a lot.

Where did you find the topper? The only one I'm able to find is the set with the compass.

About the topper, I purchased mine at a Michaels store, I also did check out some of the party stores which did carry them but were out of stock at the time I went. Best bet is to go to a Michaels craft store.


refrigerated works fine
by: Diego cake maker

Once frosted the cake will hold its moisture, the frosting will dry some, but not much. I did a wedding cake and refrigerated it the night before so it would stay cool until the reception (it was middle of summer a couple hours drive away). There is a video compilation on you tube under wookiecola, diego cake. It shows some of the layers involved in making this cake.

Love this cake....

I'm having troubles finding the macaw figurine.......where did you get this?

making this for my son's 2 yr. b-day

What tip did you use to create the palm trees and flowers along the sides of the cake? Also any tips on how you were able to get the blue icing so smooth down the center and side of the cake? Did you say that there is a demonstration of this cake assembly on you tube? Planning to make this cake for my 2 year old son's b-day next month. Thanks for any help you can give.

Macaw figurine
by: Diego cake maker

I actually went out of the box on this one, no cake toppers were sufficient in size for the cake. So, I checked the toy stores and craft stores and found a container of small rain forest animals (Michaels Store) which of course had the macaw. The extra animals became table decoration at his party, and then toys for him after the party! I would add that using toys works great, but always wash thoroughly with hot soapy water before putting them in contact with eating surfaces on the cake, even new toys have been handled at some point in time, so safety first.

You can get the toppers at birthdaydirect.com. For 6 Diego cake toppers is $4.07 and for 1 candle it is $3.84 so this is a very good site to go to

Coolest Diego Scene Cake 3

Homemade Diego Scene Cake

Homemade Diego Scene Cake

My son was turning 3 and he just loves Diego... my mom had found all the figures at Kmart and I chose all my colors for the icing.

For this homemade Diego scene cake I started with two rectangle cakes... one side was butter recipe and the other side was chocolate... I bought professional buttercream icing and iced the entire cake in white icing. I had the tube icings in the colors yellow, blue, and green.

I made the airplane tarmac by mixing buttercream and chocolate icing to make it light brown... I took the green icing with the grass tip and made two grassy areas, I took the blue icing and made a watering hole... the figurines that we found included all the animals that Diego rescues and takes care of, trees, rocks, and we picked up some airplanes.

If there is anything else you would like to know about this cake... feel free to comment or email me at BLashaO21atgmail.com... Thanks!!

Coolest Go Diego Cake Birthday Cake 2

Homemade Go Diego Cake Birthday Cake

Homemade Go Diego Cake Birthday Cake

I made this Go Diego Cake Birthday Cake for my nephew Joshua Steven. He is 5 years old and he is a fan of Diego. I made two round cakes (8 and 10 inches. I cut a little piece of the 10 inches cake and I cut about 3/4 of the 8 inches cake to make the waterfall.

I used the 1/3 of the cake for the top of the mountain. I couldn't find any figures of Diego and I cut some stickers and paste it in a foam. I cut them and put a toothpick to place it in the cake. I made the rocks with fondant. I hope you like it.

Homemade Diego Waterfall Jungle Cake

I used 2 sheet cakes. One for the bottom layer, the second I cut width-wise 1/3 off. Then stacked the 2/3 on the bottom layer, and the 1/3 on the 2/3 to be the top layer. I dug out a waterfall area in the ceter-line of the cake. Used icing tips to create grasses off the top layers around the edges. Used blue icing to be the waterfall. Added Diego and Baby Jaguar toys to be on the cake, and found jungle themed candles and placed those around on the cake.
