Homemade Pink Flamingo Birthday Cake

I wanted to make a special cake for my niece Shayna's 21st birthday. I didn't want anything alcohol related. I decided on the pink flamingo birthday cake, and got some ideas from this wonderful website!

I used fondant for the first time, and covered the cake with it, then used spray-on hot pink icing. This cake took every bit of two 10X13 cakes, plus a loaf pan sized cake for the head. I made the wing 3-day by cutting a tear drop shaped piece of cake and putting it on top of the bird body. I cut out the flamingo shape freehand, then toothpicked the pieces together, I painted wooden dowels black for the legs (decided not to do feet, I was sort of overwhelmed).

I did the standard green food coloring on coconut for the "grass", and used a puffy ribbon on the bird's head, and made the eyeball from black and white paper circles that I cut out. Then I attached a fake eyelash on the eye. I spent a lot of hours on the decorating because I am very amateur, but it came out so cool!

My niece was really excited, partly because of the sheer size of the cake, and the hot pink color. It was very fun to make and my niece Shayna absolutely loved it!

This Homemade Flamingo Birthday Cake is my test-run for my baby girl's 1st birthday coming up in a couple of months. I have never decorated a cake before so I thought I should practice, but I think it came out pretty darn good!

I used butter cream frosting for the base, then used tubes of store bought frosting to draw on the flamingo, and a leaf tip to create the "feathers" on the edges.

I had so much fun making this cake, I think I have a new hobby now!!

This Flamingo Cake was one of my easiest cakes. The flamingo body is made of rice crispy treats. I skewered the neck onto the body.

It was critical to start this several days in advance and let the rice crispy treats dry out. A candle stick is holding it up. The pond below the flamingo is the only portion that is cake.

My daughter, turning 4, requested a pink flamingo cake of course! Basic butter cake recipe with added sour cream (makes it stay moister and not as 'crumby' to cut and shape). Cut out a template from a sketch on A3 paper. Vanilla butter frosting, using butter knife dipped in hot water to smooth.
