I got my inspiration for this Eeyore Birthday Cake Design from K Walters, thank you so much! I have twin boys and one loves Eeyore and one loves Pooh. Pooh cake pans are available, but not Eeyore.
I made my cake with chocolate box cake mix. I made 1 cake mix in a 13x9 pan and 1 cake mix in 2 round cake pans. I found a template of Eeyore's head online (Google search it and select "images") then I saved the image and opened it in a photo program. I was able to print a template.
I sliced each cake horizontally down the middle so I could frost it (you can never have too much frosting!). For the center layer and the crumb layer, I used chocolate canned frosting. (add powdered sugar to canned frosting and it will stiffen up just like homemade buttercream).
Frosting this cake was tricky and time consuming. I had to frost Eeyore's head first then add one ear at a time. Once the crumb coating stiffened up on the, I frosted the pink on the inside of each ear (I used Wilton tip #16 for everything except the piping) BEFORE placing it on the board next to his head. Once in place, I filled in any cracks with blue frosting.
The blue and pink frosting were just canned white frosting (with powdered sugar added) tinted with Wilton color gels. For his mane, I just used the Wilton black frosting (you can buy it in a tube) with a slanted tip. Just pull up with the tip right at the end and let it fall down like a messy mane.
The cake was a big hit and delicious too!

I made this Eeyore Birthday Cake for my daughter's 1st birthday, as Eeyore is her favourite toy that she sleeps with and takes everywhere. This is a cake I designed by myself.
Firstly I made a large rectangular butter cake, using three times a home made butter cake recipe ( but packet cakes will work also) the size of cake I made takes 1hr to cook. I found an image of Eeyore's head and made a baking/tracing paper template cutting out the head, ears and hair semicircle out separately.
Once positioned on the cake board, I made two quantities of Vienna or butter icing and divided it into three, with only a small amount for the black. The flesh pink icing was made from the pink after I had finished icing the ears by adding several drops of yellow colouring and lightening the colour with more white un-coloured icing.
Eyeore's hair is strands of strap licorice cut with points and placed to look like a messy mane and mouth, nose and other black areas were also strap licorice cut into thin strips. The white of his eyes were made from royal icing that I made mixing together egg white and icing sugar until it was thick and then adding a drop of lemon juice. The white paste was kneaded with a little more icing sugar and then rolled to the desired thickness.
I hope this helps all those who want to make an Eeyore cake as there aren't that many cakes/ideas available for such a lovable character. All of my daughters loved the cake, especially the birthday girl and blue icing was everywhere!
